"God wants us to remember the miracle that we came out of Egypt, back then, we left without food, we ate something small, we didn’t have time, we had no time at all to linger to make bread. It reminds us of the miracle, God took us out at once, in a rush, with a strong hand, therefore if we want to express that our bread during the holiday is Matzo, so we have to take out the bread. As olive (in the bible) isn’t allowed, not even a crumb is allowed during Passover."

Ultra-Orthodox Jews in Jerusalem’s religious Mea Shearim neighbourhood burned leavened bread, known as hametz, on Passover eve, Monday.

During Passover only unleavened bread known as Matzo can be eaten, according to tradition.

Jews around the world will begin celebrating the week-long Passover holiday, recounting the biblical story of their exodus from Egypt after hundreds of years of slavery.

But for many Israelis, it’s hard to fathom a celebration of freedom when friends and family are not free.

The Hamas attack on Oct. 7 killed some 1,200 people, while about 250 others were taken hostage.

About half were released in a weeklong cease-fire in November, while the rest remain in Gaza, more than 30 of them believed to be dead.

The Israel-Hamas war has killed more than 34,000 Palestinians, according to local health officials, at least two-thirds of them children and women.

It has devastated Gaza’s two largest cities and left a swath of destruction.

Around 80% of the territory’s population have fled to other parts of the besieged coastal enclave.
