Yerushalayim Inspectors Shut Down Old City Bread Carts Selling Chometz On Pesach

chometzYerushalayim city inspectors in recent days have closed down dozens of food carts in the area of the Old City’s Shaar Yaffo where chometz were being sold. Non-Jewish Druze inspectors closed down about 20 of the stands on Shabbos, after the city received hundreds of complaints about the public display of chometz, Arutz Sheva reports.

While Israeli law does not prohibit anyone from consuming chometz – indeed, there are numerous restaurants in Yerushalayim, Tel Aviv, and other cities where Pesach laws are not kept – it is illegal to publicly display bread and leavened items outdoors, out of sensitivity to the Jewish majority.
