Passover (Pasach) 2023: Your Ultimate Guide to Observing and celebrating Pasach

Exodus 12 (1-14)

[1] And the Yahawah spake unto Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying,

[2] This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you.

[3] Speak ye unto all the congregation of Israel (Yasharal) , saying, In the tenth day of this month they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to the house of their fathers, a lamb for an house:

[4] And if the household be too little for the lamb, let him and his neighbour next unto his house take it according to the number of the souls; every man according to his eating shall make your count for the lamb.

[5] Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year: ye shall take it out from the sheep, or from the goats:

[6] And ye shall keep it up until the fourteenth day of the same month: and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it in the evening.

[7] And they shall take of the blood, and strike it on the two side posts and on the upper door post of the houses, wherein they shall eat it.

[8] And they shall eat the flesh in that night, roast with fire, and unleavened bread; and with bitter herbs they shall eat it.

[9] Eat not of it raw, nor sodden at all with water, but roast with fire; his head with his legs, and with the purtenance thereof.

[10] And ye shall let nothing of it remain until the morning; and that which remaineth of it until the morning ye shall burn with fire.

[11] And thus shall ye eat it; with your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and ye shall eat it in haste: it is the Yahawah's passover.

[12] For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and will smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: I am YAHAWAH.

[13] And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt.

[14] And this day shall be unto you for a memorial; and ye shall keep it a feast to YAHAWAH throughout your generations; ye shall keep it a feast by an ordinance for ever.

What is Pasach?

Black American “Jews” in the early 1900’s

Passover is a feast ordained by Yahawah Alahyam to remember and celebrate our, the Children of Yasharal's deliverance from bondage/ enslavement in Egypt.

The scripture says our people, the Children of Yasharal were enslaved under hard bondage. Yahawah spoke to Moses and Aaron and gave them clear instructions to give to His people in preparation for deliverance from Egypt. Because of this wonderous act done by Yahawah, we, the descendants of Yasharal must keep this feast in remembrance of Yah’s deliverance of Yasharal.

Immediately following Pasach we are commanded to keep the feast of Unleavened bread.

Do's and Don'ts of Pasach

According to Dabar Ha Qadash we must:

  • Keep it a feast to Yahawah and teach it throughout our generations

  • Have a meal commemorating Pasach

  • Prepare a meal, roast your lamb

  • Eat with unleavened bread

According to Dabar Ha Qadash we must not:

  • Ignore the feast day

  • Do not boil or stew the lamb

  • Feast of the Passover should remain until morning- do not save "leftovers." All should be eaten before morning

  • If a stranger shall observe the Passover with us the males should be circumsized if not naturally then spiritually

Many Israelites (Black Americans in Harlem, 1901)) were awakened to know we are the descendants of the Biblical Children of Israel and began to implement honoring the Biblical Feast and keeping the commandments. It is imperative that we, the Children of Israel, remain steadfast and unmovable in our faith. That we follow the laws, statutes and commandments with fidelity for they are commandments of Yahawah Tazabawath ( Yahawah of Hosts.)
