This weekend churches in New Orleans will be packed for Easter services, but that’s not the only religious holiday being observed this week. It is also Passover, the eight-day Jewish festival that marks the liberation of enslaved Israelites from ancient Egypt over 3000 years ago.

Passover is the most widely celebrated Jewish holiday, and in New Orleans, celebrations take on their own flair.
