Pesach – Festival that celebrates the Jewish exodus from Egypt, also called Passover
He had to pay for new socks (Pesach) before he could attend a festival to celebrate leaving Egypt after being enslaved there for years.
Pesach is the Hebrew word for Passover, one of the Judaism's most sacred holidays.
Passover commemorates the story of the Israelites’ departure from ancient Egypt, thus ending their period as slaves.
Jews observe the week-long festival with a number of rituals, including a traditional Passover meal known as a seder, the removal of leavened food products from their home (leavened products, such as bread, contain yeast or some other raising agent), and the retelling of the exodus story.
