On this final day of Passover we strive for the highest level of freedom, and focus on the Final Redemption. Following the Baal Shem Tov's custom, we end Passover with the "Moshiach Seudah (meal)"— complete with matzah and four cups of wine, during which we celebrate the imminent arrival of the Messiah. The meal begins before sunset and continues until after nightfall.

Passover Ends: 9:01 pm
