Ultra-Orthodox Jews take part in a protest in Jerusalem
Ultra-Orthodox Jews take part in a protest in Jerusalem April 22, 2008. The protest is against the sale of leavened food during the Jewish holiday of Passover. A court decision in Israel to allow stores and restaurants to sell food banned by Jewish ritual law during the Passover holiday has angered the country's influential Orthodox Jewish community. To commemorate the biblical Israelites' hasty exodus from slavery in Egypt, ritual Jewish law forbids eating leavened products during Passover.
