    14th of Nisan, 5777 = Mon, 10 April 2017

    Locally, the JW-event is tonight. Tue, 11 April 2017 which is 24h late because 14th of Nisan (Passover Preparation) starts on 10 April.

    This year the Passover event is being held on Tuesday April 11 – Monday April 17. While this is the official date, in the Jewish calendar the holiday actually kick starts on the evening of the previous day on Monday April 10 which is when the "Lord's Evening Meal" was retroactively instituted.

    Anony Mous,

    Actually, the Jehovah's Witnesses are holding the Memorial on Nisan 16 this year.

    The first night of Passover was Monday night, and that was Nisan 15 (we Jews observe it on the 15th and NOT the 14th, as the 14th is the Day of Preparation). The Full Moon of Spring (often called the Pink Moon) waxed fully on Monday night over Jerusalem and the rest of the world.

    Tonight the moon has begun to wane, and since sundown it has been the 16th of Nisan. I just had my second Passover Seder tonight (we do it twice, the first night and the second of Passover). The JWs are very off.

    Some suggest that Jesus celebrated the seder meal according to the solar Essene calendar. But i have yet to do the research.
