Jerusalem – In Photos: Jews Readying For Pesach With Bi’ur Chametz


    Ultra-Orthodox Jews stand near a fire as they burn leaven in the Mea Shearim neighbourhood of Jerusalem, ahead of the Jewish holiday of Passover, April 6, 2012. Passover commemorates the flight of Jews from ancient Egypt, as described in the Exodus chapter of the Bible. According to the account, the Jews did not have time to prepare leavened bread before fleeing to the promised land. REUTERS/Ronen ZvulunJerusalem – Jews around the globe this morning before Passover, before the fifth hour, burn all the chametz that was found during the search last night, and anything that was left over from breakfast and not stored with the chametz that will be sold to the non-Jew.

    After the chametz has been burnt in the fire, we recite the following declaration:

    All leaven or anything leavened which is in my possession, whether I have seen it or not, whether I have observed it or not, whether I have removed it or not, shall be considered nullified and ownerless as the dust of the earth.
