On the morning of April 14, in preparation for the Passover holiday, Jews across the globe will gather to burn their chametz, leavened foods like bread that are forbidden on Passover. Instead of chametz Jews eat matzah, a hard, cracker-like food made from a dough of only flour and water which has not been allowed to rise.
The holiday of Passover, which begins Monday evening celebrates the miraculous exodus of the Jewish people from slavery in Ancient Egypt some 3,300 years ago.
In recent years, Chabad-Lubavitch, the world's largest Jewish organization, has initiated a Passover campaign to reinvigorate the observance of the holiday by organizing thousands of communal seders. This year, Chabad organized seders will be attended by hundreds of thousands in more than 80 countries, including the world's largest seders in Katmandu, Nepal and Cusco, Peru.

For those not familiar, Holy Week begins Sunday with Palm (Passion) Sunday oft observed with palm branches remembering Jesus' celebrated entrance into Jerusalem. It is also the time that contrasts that in many churches with the retelling of the story of his crucifixion.
Holy Week progresses to Maundy (Holy) Thursday which recalls the Last Supper which Christ celebrated with his disciples on the night before his death on the cross which is remembered on Good Friday. (April 18 this year)
In the Christian tradition, Jesus's resurrection is celebrated on the following Sunday, Easter.
