Pessach Preparations in Jerusalem


I spent a few hours in Jerusalem this morning. Shopping and taking pictures showing some Pessach atmosphere. An atmosphere, we don't really have in Tel Aviv.

Pessach shopping at the Machane Yehudah Market.

Nut cookies which are only being sold before and during Pessach. Kidniyot for Ashkenazi Jews but Sephardi Jews eat them. I love them and wish they would be sold throughout the year.

Those coconut cookies are free of Kidniyot. I personally cannot stand them because they are dry and have a soapy taste.

Mazzot variety at the Machane Yehudah Market

Many families only eat handmade Mazzot at the Seder night. The reason is that those Mazzot are quite expensive and not everybody can afford them. On the other days, most Jews eat machine - made Mazzot.

 Selling of the Chametz (Mechirat Chametz) in Machzike'i HaDa'at.

Every Jew should have a Seder and sufficient food. A haredi charity organization is offering help.
