Tonight: Pesach Sheni

Today is Pesach Sheni, which occurs one month after Pesach.

The historical purpose of this day was for those who were unable to bring the Korban Pesach on the correct date—because they were then Tamei or too far from Yerushalayim—to have a second chance to do so.

Some have the Minhag to mark this day by eating Matzah, in memory of the Korban Pesach.

  1. Chasam Sofer pointed out that since Pesach Sheini was eaten at night (Leil 15) and as such, one should eat Matzoh then as none was eaten on the 14th of Iyar!
