  Breakfast during Jewish Passover
by Kuznetsov_Sergey

I should say Israeli breakfast plentiful and very varied. Though it was Pesakh and they didn’t give us any bread.
Passover or Pesakh is a Jewish holy day and festival commemorating the Hebrews' escape from enslavement in Egypt. When Pharaoh freed the Hebrews, it is said that they left in such a hurry that they could not wait for bread to rise. In commemoration, for the duration of Passover, no leavened bread is eaten, for which reason it is called "The Festival of the Unleavened Bread". Matza (unleavened bread) is the primary symbol of the holiday. This bread that is flat and unrisen is called Matzo.
You can see it on my photo. You can also see "Bon Apetit" in Russian!
Snacks are also available in the hotel's restaurant as are lunch and dinner.
