Jews Burn Bread Before Passover, Jerusalem

Jews Burn Bread Before Passover, Jerusalem
Ultra-Orthodox Jews burn leaven products before the Passover holiday, which starts at dusk, in Mea Shearim in Jerusalem, Israel, March 25, 2013. The Passover holiday commemorates the liberation of the Israelites from slavery from the Pharaoh in ancient Egypt as told in Exodus. Jews refrain from eating leavened products for the eight day Passover festival because it is said that the children of Israel didn't have time for their dough to rise when they escaped from Egypt.
