NYC Jews begin Passover by burning leavened bread

New York Jews on Friday lit leavened bread in bonfires in designated areas across the city to mark the start of the Passover holiday.

The Biur Chametz in front of the Yetev Lev D’Satmar Synagogue in Borough Park, Brooklyn, saw the Jewish community gather to watch the tradition — where all leavened produce is burned before the Passover Seder begins at sunset.

FDNY Engine 517 monitored the site, distributed fire safety pamphlets — and put out the blazes after the acidified products were reduced to ash.
