The Night of Passover
Lighting the candles, blessing children, sanctifying the day over wine or grape juice, and eating matzah are the rituals by which we mark the start of the holiday.
Kiddush, sanctification of the holiday over wine or grape juice, varies depending on the day of the week:
- Kiddush for Sunday through Thursday Nights (sanctification of Passover)
- Kiddush for Friday Night (sanctification of Shabbat and Passover together)
- Kiddush for Saturday Night (farewell to Shabbat and sanctification of Passover)
