Ultra Orthodox Jews in Jerusalem's Mea Shearim preparing for Passover one of the most important jewish holidays by boil their utensils due to the strict separation between matzo products and chametz and also donating food to charity, which commemorates the Exodus from Egypt. Ultra orthodox Jewish families typically own complete sets of serving dishes, glassware and silverware that are reserved for use during Passover only. Under certain circumstances, some chametz utensils can be immersed in boiling water (hagalat keilim) to purge them of any traces of chametz they have accumulated throughout the year.
