Ultra-Orthodox Jewish men knead the dough before baking the Matzoth or unleavened bread in Jerusalem. Religious and observant Jews throughout the world eat matzoth during the eight-day Pesach holiday (Passover), which begins the April 6, with the sunset to commemorate the Israelis' exodus from Egypt some 3,500 years ago and commemorate their ancestors' plight by refraining from eating leavened food products.
