arrow icon. Hallelujah Moment From Ukraine: Easter in Ukraine 
Easter is called “Paska” in Ukraine, the term also used for the Jewish Passover. Jesus went to the cross during Passover, an observance that recalls the blood of the lambs that protected the Israelites as the angel of death "passed-over" their houses in Egypt. The Passover prepared the way for the exodus in the time of Moses. We Christians also use the image of the slain lamb by whose blood we are saved, and in Easter we celebrate the resurrection of Christ that brings our freedom.
