The Torah focus is on the Passover and its laws, the reading ends with the last of the Ten Plagues, the slaying of the Egyptian firstborn sons. Pharaoh summons Moses and Aaron, and tells them that he wants them out of Egypt as soon as possible. Moses and Aaron comply, and the children of Israel begin to make a quick exit, not allowing the bread to rise.
The Haftarah for the first day of Passover is taken from the Book of Joshua. In its description of the historic Passover which the Israelites observed at Gilgal after they had crossed the Jordan River. It was the first celebration of Passover in the Holy Land. In preparation for the Passover observance, all of the Israelite males were circumcised. They then ate the first matzot made from wheat in the Holy Land. this Haftarah is read on the first day of Passover because it describes the first Passover celebration to take place in Israel.
May everyone have a Zissen Pesach!
