Just as Hanukkah  and Christmas share the December holiday season, Passover and Easter frequently overlap in the spring.  Within both festivals, nature and history converge with a resounding message of hope. The regeneration of nature that comes with spring and amplifies the promise of redemption embedded in the historical events being commemorated. To each faith community, God’s presence manifests itself in two keys, in nature and through history. 

In each case, the calendar is adjusted to ensure that the holiday is celebrated early in the spring. For the church believed that the resurrection took place on a Sunday, the First Council of Nicaea in 325 determined that Easter should always fall on the first Sunday after the first full moon following the vernal equinox. In consequence, Easter remained without a fixed date but proximate to the full moon, which coincided with the start of Passover on the 15th of the Hebrew month Nissan.

Judaism and Christianity both rest firmly on the foundation stories recounted ritually in their respective spring festivals. In Egypt, the family of Jacob had morphed into a nation welded together by the bitter experience of oppression.

Rabbis understood the verse “You go free on this day, in the month of Aviv” to limit Passover to early in springtime. That it is in a transitional month when the winter rain ends, and the weather turns mild. rabbis understood the verse “You go free on this day, in the month of Aviv” to restrict Passover to early spring. This falls in a transitional month when the winter rains end, and the weather turns mild. Passover is largely about Egypt. Easter is largely about Passover. Its historical setting is Jerusalem at Passover, the Last Supper could have been an early seder, with Jesus fated to become the paschal lamb. 

While both holidays are about delivery from a state of despair, slavery or sin, Passover heralds the birth of the Jewish people as a force for good in the peace of nations. In contrast, Easter assures the individual Christian life eternal. 

Passover summons Jews collectively into the world to repair it. Easter offers a way out of a world beyond repair.  All employees and agents at Waterfront Properties and Club Communitie extend wishes for a wonderful Passover and a blessed Easter.
