Biur Chametz

Burning Chametz

No, it’s not another Haredi protest against the draft.

In these photos, we are seeing the traditional burning of the Chametz (leavened bread), that Jews do on the day of Passover.

As part of the ceremony, any leavened bread that might still accidentally be in one’s possession is declared owner-less.

For some reason, I’m reminded of Lag B’Omer.

  1. Dan Silagi says:

    Another idiotic Jewish tradition, along with Kapporot. It's one thing to substitute Matzoh for leavened bread for the duration of the holidays. It's a symbolic way to celebrate the Israelites' deliverance from the Pharoahs. But ultra-orthodox rabbis have taken this to extremes, particularly in recent years. Why is it necessary to burn all your bread, cookies, and cakes (not to mention other items which have nothing to do with wheat)? Is your house suddenly contaminated? But giving it a good spring cleaning won't hurt, I guess.
