As the Passover holiday approached, the streets of Jerusalem filled with smoke.
On Sunday there were lines of people waiting near the steaming pots of boiling water to kasher metal utensils, and
blow torches were used to burn
every last bit of a crumb
off of metal oven racks.
Monday morning things really heated up, and smoke filled the air,
as people came to burn their chametz, any bread product had to be disposed of during the morning hours.
Young and old came to Bustan Brody Garden
where one large fire was organized for the neighborhood turning it into a major social event.
The air filled with smoke,
it was hard to breathe,
but even these dogs who
had to wait while their
did not complain.
