Location: LEZAJSK, Poland
March 17, 2017

An orthodox Jewish pilgrim takes part in celebrations held to mark the 230th anniversary of the death of Tzadik Elimelech in Lezajsk, south east Poland, 17 March 2017. Hasidic pilgrims from around the world visit the grave of Tzadik Elimelech year-round to pray for the health and well-being of children, as well as success at work. Requests are made on slips of paper called kvitelach, which are laid at the Tzadik Elimelech’s grave, called ohel. Prayers at the tomb of Tzadik are accompanied by traditional dances and singing psalms.
