Happy Passover 5776 (2016)

Happy Passover 5776!

Exodus 12:15 – Seven days you shall eat unleavened bread. On the first day you shall remove leaven out of your houses, for if anyone eats what is leavened, from the first day until the seventh day, that person shall be cut off from Israel.

Traditionally, Jews – religious and non-religious – gather the last leaven from their homes and take it outside to be burned. All over Israel, this tradition can be seen at Passover.

These boys are burning the last leaven found in their homes as part of the Passover tradition.
