The Importance of Blue and White with the Jewish Faith
White's imagery relates to purity. It's a representation of the cleansing and renewal of the spirit that's been enslaved. Blue may be interpreted as the greatness that is the sea and sky as well as the expanse of the universe. Red is symbolic of the earth, and all that's created upon it. The mixture of red and blue creates purple, and purple is the point at which man and woman meet God.

The Redemptive Theme of Passover
On the surface, Passover is a yearly celebration commemorating the Jews' escape from enslavement at the hands of the Egyptians. At its core, however, it is symbolic of redemption. It represents God's intercession in the Israelite's liberation, but it involves another deeper layer for humanity. It's a reminder for Jews to cleanse the spiritual self in order to reach one's full potential ethically and morally.
The preparation for Passover involves a thorough cleansing of the home and removal of any leavened foods. Again, the surface meaning here alludes to the hasty departure of the Hebrews from Egypt and the gathering of their bread for the journey before it had time to rise properly. Like unleavened bread, however, the symbolism is representative of the cleansing of one's soul and removing any added fillers, such as arrogance.
With so many layers to such a joyous spring celebration, you can see why each and every aspect of the holiday is so ceremonially linked with symbolic traditions.
