Over the past decade, Passover programs have popped up in some exotic locations. Although the UAE and Morocco are Arab countries, they are very popular Pesach vacation destinations, especially since the signing of the Abraham Accords in 2020. The Pesach programs in Dubai and Morocco are at luxury resorts and there are many options for day trips and activities during Chol Hamoed Pesach. After a brief hiatus due to COVID, Pesach in Thailand is once again an option for those looking for a bit of adventure. Pesach 2023 begins on Wednesday, April 5th and ends on Thursday, April 13th (Wednesday, April 12th in Israel). Time to start planning your Pesach vacation.
