ISRAELI ARAB AND JEWISH RABBIS CONCLUDE AGREEMENT TO TEMPORARILY SELL ALL THE LEAVENED PRODUCTS IN ISRAEL DURING THE PASSOVER HOLIDAY IN JERUSALEM.


Israeli-Arab Hussien Ismail Jaber (L) reaches to shake hands with Israel's Chief Ashkenazi Rabbi Yisrael Meir Lau (R) and Chief Sephardic Rabbi Eliahu Bakshi-Doron (C) as Jaber receives Israel's "hametz", or leavening, for the Jewish high holiday of Passover after handing over to the Rabbis several large stacks of 100 Shekel notes (on table) April 18. Jabar signed a contract with the rabbis to temporarily purchase all the leavened products in the country during the Passover holiday period. Passover and the traditional "seder" meal begins on at sundown tomorrow evening, April 19, and commemorates the exodus of the Hebrews from Egypt. It is a time when religious Jews thoroughly clean their homes and refrain from eating any food containing leavening such as bread, whisky or beer.

Hussein Ismail Jaber, an Israeli Arab from the village of Abu Gosh (L), receives from the Chief Ashkenazi Rabbi Israel Lau (R) a package containing all the "hametz", or leavening, in Israel as the Chief Sephardic Rabbi Eliahu Bakshi-Doron looks on April 9 in a ceremony in the offices of the rabbis prior to the start of the Jewish high holiday of Passover. Passover, which begins with the "seder" dinner tomorrow evening, is a week-long holiday celebrating the exodus of the Hebrews from Egypt. It is a time when religious Jews thoroughly clean their homes and refrain from eating any food such as bread that contains leavening. The rabbis symbolically sell all the leavening in Israel to Arabs for the week-long Passover holiday which is returned after the holiday ends.

HASSAN BEQ MOSQUE BETWEEN TEL AVIV AND JAFFA
The Hassan Beq mosque minaret seen December 2 along the Tel Aviv sea front with a new luxury hotel under construction. The mosque has been under reconstruction for many years supported by small contributions gathered from the Jaffa Moslem community. Israel's chief Ashkenazi Rabbi Yisrael Lau said he favours opening some mosques located in Israel which were "abandoned" by Arabs during the War of Independence in 1948, such as those located in Caesarea, Beersheba and Tiberias. This mosque was once located on the border line separating Jaffa from Tel Aviv.
