Ultra-Orthodox Jews woman and children walk in an empty street in an East Jerusalem neighborhood on Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, Jerusalem, Israel on 28 September 2009. Yom Kippur is the holiest and most solemn in the Jewish calendar and religious Jews spend the day in prayer. Traffic is not allowed throughout Israel during the day and children and secular Jews take time to explore the city on their bicycles. Photo by Mohamar Awad
