Jewish families in Baltimore are preparing for the start of Passover – the week-long commemoration of the deliverance of the ancient Hebrews from slavery in Egypt.
It all began Monday morning with the burning of leavened foods.

Monday night Jewish families will sit down to a Passover Seder dinner, marking the beginning of Passover.
