Passover Preparations in Jerusalem

Passover is less than a week away. To prepare for this holy season, Jews clean their homes from top to bottom, ensuring all traces of leaven bread – including the crumbs – have been washed away. Even the youngest members of the ultra-Orthodox part of Jerusalem are happy to help with the cleaning, making sure their tricycle and pedal car are ready for this special Jewish holiday.

This annual cleaning prepares the home for the traditional Passover seder, the ritual meal of the holiday, which begins on April 10 this year.
