ISRAEL-EILAT-PASSOVER-HOLIDAY

A girl looks back on the shore of the Red Sea in Eilat, southern Israel, on April 18, 2014. Many visitors came here for leisure and recreation during the Passover holiday. Passover is an important Biblically-derived Jewish festival celebrated from April 14 to April 21 this year. The Jewish people celebrate Passover as a commemoration of their liberation over 3,300 years ago by God from slavery in ancient Egypt that was ruled by the Pharaohs, and their freedom as a nation under the leadership of Moses. It commemorates the story of the Exodus as described in the Hebrew Bible especially in the Book of Exodus, in which the Israelites were freed from slavery in Egypt. (Xinhua/Li Rui)
