Pesach Sheni – Second Passover

Rabbi & Brenda
by Rabbi Jeremy
& Brenda Storch








Due to the Coronavirus, a lot of us were not able to celebrate Passover together with our extended families and friends. And while we look anxiously towards next year’s community Seder, many are taking advantage of Pesach Sheni or Second Passover.

Pesach Sheni marks the day when people who were unable to participate in the Passover on the 14th of Nisan get the chance to observe it. The date is exactly one month after that on the 14th of Iyar. This year it begins Thursday evening May 7th and ends Friday evening May 8th.

So how did Pesach Sheni come about? A year after the Exodus, G-d instructed the Israelites to bring the Passover offering on the afternoon of the 14th of Nissan, and to eat it that evening, roasted over the fire, together with matzah and bitter herbs, as they had they had done the previous year just before they left Egypt.


“There were, however, certain persons who had become ritually impure through contact with a dead body, and could not, therefore, prepare the Passover offering on that day. They approached Moses and Aaron. . . and they said: ‘. . . Why should we be deprived, and not be able to present G‑d’s offering in its time, amongst the children of Israel?’” (Numbers 9:6–7).
