Passover – or, as it is also called in the Torah, Hag Hamatzot – is a holiday of clear historical significance. Thousands of years ago, the Jewish nation was enslaved in Egypt, suffering from demeaned status and forced labor.

At some point, God intervened and redeemed the enslaved nation through wondrous miracles that defied the laws of nature. He liberated the nation and gave it the Torah and led it to the Land of Israel.
