Es wird noch heute so gefeiert, wie es Jesus später mit seinen Jüngern feierte, als er das Altarsakrament einsetzte und von ihnen Abschied nahm. Heute wird zwar kein Pesachlamm mehr geschlachtet, aber noch immer verteilt der Hausherr unter den vorgeschriebenen Gebeten das ungesäuerte Brot (Mazzen) und die bitteren Kräuter, die an die Trübsal der Verbannung erinnern, segnet den Wein und liest den Bericht über die Befreiung des Gottesvolkes aus Ägypten vor.
Der Festkalender der Juden unterteilt die Feiertage in vier Gruppen, so ist die Pesachfeier den jüdischen Wallfahrtsfesten zuzuordnen.
