Sunday, May 19th, 2019 = 14 Iyar 5779

In response to the plea of persons who had become ritually impure through contact with a dead body, and could not, therefore, prepare the Passover offering on 14 Nisan , God established the 14th of Iyar as a "second Passover" (Pesach sheini) for anyone who was unable to bring the offering on its appointed time in the previous month.
