Describe the covenant between God and the people, according to Jewish custom. Explain how the Passover, Exodus and Ten Commandments served as a special renewal of this covenant.
I know the covenant was about how God freed the people from slavery and sent moses to help them, but I don't understand the second half of the question.

    Well, the Passover was instituted by God. God instituted the Passover to remind the people of how He freed them from the Egyptians. The Exodus was actually the leaving of Egypt. The 10 commandments was God's word to the people, telling them how to live according to Him. He instituted the 10 Commandments so that they would know how to follow Him in the way He wanted, which was a part of the Covenant.

    The covenant is described by our torah, "that if you obey all my commandments, then I will be your God and you will be my people. And I will dwell among you"
