Pesach Sheni (The Second Passover)

Pesach Sheni occurs every year on 14 Iyar.

Pesach Sheni means “Second Passover [Sacrifice].” It marks the day when someone who was unable to participate in the Passover offering in the proper time would observe the mitzvah exactly one month later.

It is customary to mark this day by eating matzah – shmurah matzah, if possible – and by omitting Tachanun from the prayer services.
