Sephardic v Ashkenazi Differences[edit]

The summary box notes there are one or two Seder meals. The option of one or two Seders (first night, second night) is an Ashkenazi tradition. In Sephardic, we have two or three Seders. There is always a Seder on the first night; and there is always a Seder on the seventh night; and some people also do a second night Seder, especially if they live in communities with lots of Ashkenazim.

There are also other differences that the article might elicit, such as the Sephardic tradition of acting out the Exodus at the Seder. Among other things, this always features someone play-acting at being a man or woman or child (or Elijah in disguise) bent over from the weight of carrying a heavy pack. "From where have you come?" someone (or the group) asks. "From Egypt and slavery!" s/he answers. "To where are you going?" another asks. "To Israel and freedom!" And so on. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 73.162.218.153 (talk) 16:54, 31 March 2015 (UTC)

Distinction Between Sunset and Nightfall[edit]

What is the distinction between sunset and nightfall? In ordinary use, they can be conflated. What nuance distinguishes them? 24.210.33.93 (talk) 18:04, 3 April 2015 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 8 April 2015[edit]

Passover IS observed by St. Thomas Christians of India. Not Jews only. They are distinct from groups that claim relation to Israelite peoples.
