Burning of the Chametz

Location: Jerusalem, Israel
April 6, 2012

Ultra-Orthodox Jews pray after burning leavened bread in the Mea Shearim neighbourhood of Jerusalem, Israel, 06 April 2012. The burning of all products containing leavening agents, or Chametz, after a thorough cleaning of their houses is part of the preparation for the high holiday of Passover at sunset this evening. Religious Jewish families and stores and restaurants remove all traces of Chametz prior to the Passover feast, which commemorates the Israelites’ exodus from ancient Egypt.
