As Passover approaches, KKL-JNF has released a series of photographs documenting the celebration of the holiday during the state’s early years, from the 1940s to the 1980s.

“With Passover approaching, we are pleased to share with the public some exciting scenes from Israel’s history over the decades, preserved in
KKL-JNF’s photo archive,” said Efrat Sinai, archives manager at KKL-JNF.

“The photos showcase the baking of matzah, the search for chametz, the Passover seder, and the holiday processions. The images reveal to us the beautiful Israel of the past alongside the tradition that has remained unchanged to this day,” she added.
