Memorial of Christ’s Death

Jehovah’s Witnesses commemorate Christ’s death as a ransom or “propitiatory sacrifice” by observing the Lord’s Evening Meal, or Memorial. They celebrate it once per year, noting that it was instituted on the Passover, an annual festival.  They observe it on Nisan 14 according to the ancient Jewish luni-solar calendar.  Jehovah’s Witnesses are taught that this is the only celebration the Bible commands Christians to observe.
