When is Passover in 2016 and 2017?

When is Passover in 2016 and 2017?

Passover Dates


The holiday of Pesach, or Passover, falls on the Hebrew calendar dates of Nissan 15-22. Here are coinciding secular dates for the upcoming years:

2015:   April 3-11

2016:   April 22-30

2017:   April 10-18

Note: The Jewish calendar date begins at sundown of the night beforehand. Thus all holiday observances begin at sundown on the secular dates listed, with the following day being the first full day of the holiday. (Thus, the first Passover seder is held on the evening of the first date listed.) Jewish calendar dates conclude at nightfall.

The first two days of Passover (from sundown of the first date listed, until nightfall two days later) are full-fledged, no-work-allowed holiday days. The subsequent four days are Chol Hamoed, when work is allowed, albeit with restrictions. Chol Hamoed is followed by another two full holiday days.

Pesach is not known as a time for presents but if you are going somewhere for a seder, a gift is appropriate. It can be given anytime but should not be brought once the holiday begins. One popular idea is a bottle of good kosher wine.

Assistance re Passover gifts please
Does one send gifts to Jewish friends and family during Pesach or only if you go for dinner? I.e. does one send gifts or must you be invited for dinner and then take an appropriate gift along? If one does send gifts, when is the most appropriate day on which to have it delivered?

Marriage dates
To Bernie & Yankel:
According to some authorities, there is an exception to the prohibition of marriage during the Sefira period after Passover. Marriage (and possibbly other festivities) is allowed on Rosh Khodesh, the first day of the Jewish month. The year I was married in an Orthodox synagogue it conveniently fell on Sunday May 2. Consult with your local rabbi.
