JEWS TO KEEP PASSOVER.
Celebration Begins With Feast at Sundown This Evening.
At sundown tonight all Jews, especially those of orthodox faith, are expected to being the celebration of the Jewish Passover, a religious observance which has obtained from Biblical times. The celebration begins with the Feast of the Passover, in the Jewish homes, identified with the Last Supper of which Christ and the Disciples partook.
Following the sundown observance tonight, there will be public services at the synagogues at 10'oclock tomorrow morning. For seven days, beginning tomorrow morning, the strictly orthodox Jews will eat no bread, only unleavened wafer, symbolical of the conditions which confronted the Jews when they began their seven days of deliverance out of the bondage in Egypt. Their deliverance was unheralded, and they had no time to await the rising of the bread. During their seven days journey, therefore, they ate only unleavened bread.
The entire celebration is a historical observance of their exodus from Egypt when they "departed hastily and tarried not."
