The first night of the Passover

Millions of Jews the world over begin the Passover festival as the sun sinks tonight.
There are dozens of traditions associated with this ritualized re-enactment of the exodus from Egypt.
One universal tradition is the singing of the Hallel (Psalms).
For Christians these songs/hymns are significantly the last songs Jesus would have sung with his followers.
So on this first night of passover, a special Chag Sameach

A beautiful Yemeni rendition of the Hallel
