Michal Meron captures the Pesach celebrated annually in Venice. The Jewish community of Venice celebrates every year a Seder for all the members. The weeks before, volunteers of the community bake the Mazzot and the typical Pesach cookies according to traditional recipes in the old Pesach forno (bakery) like their ancestors did since the Ghetto was established in 1516.
