Traditional Passover priestly blessing at the Western Wall
22 The Lord said to Moses,
23 “Tell Aaron and his sons, ‘This is how you are to bless the Israelites. Say to them:
24 “The Lord bless you
and keep you;
25 the Lord make his face shine on you
and be gracious to you;
26 the Lord turn his face toward you
and give you peace.”’
27 “So they will put my name on the Israelites, and I will bless them.”
For instance, you're supposed to discard or donate all bread products before Passover. Last year, my mother in law was surprised that we had some bagels in our freezer. I opted against telling her that the cold-cuts drawer in the refrigerator had at least a half-pound of sliced hot (spicy) deli ham.
Pesach is not pronounced "paysock" unless you want to sound like a fool.
Here is its phonetic alphabet:
[pɛsɑːX] or [peɪsɑːX]
The ending [X] is a voiceless velar fricative.
Just so you know.
