Location: Jerusalem, Israel
April 10, 2017

A young Ultra-Orthodox Jew sits in a concrete cube as others pray and burn leavened bread at Mea Shearim neighborhood in Jerusalem, Israel, 10 April 2017. The burning of all products containing leavening agents, or Chametz, is a customary preparation ahead of the week-long Jewish high holiday of Passover that commemorates the Jewish exodus from Egypt in Biblical times. The holiday begins on the evening of 10 April and ends on the evening of 18 April.
