During this week-long Feast of Unleavened Bread (Lev 23:6, Exodus 12:15-17), nothing with leaven (yeast) in it may be eaten. Leaven is the symbol of all that is unclean and evil and therefore must scrupulously be removed from all houses before the Passover feast.
Abstaining from leavened bread for seven days was symbolic of God’s people separating themselves from sin and becoming a holy people and experiencing a holy walk with the Lord.
