In pics: "Pidyon Haben" ceremony held at synagogue in Rehovot, Israel

An ultra orthodox Jewish man of the Kretchnief Hasidic sect blesses his son, a thirty-day-old infant, during the "Pidyon Haben" ceremony at a synagogue in Rehovot, 30 km south of Tel Aviv, Israel, on May 16, 2018. The Pidyon Haben, or redemption of the first-born son, is a mitzvah in Judaism whereby a Jewish firstborn son is redeemed by use of silver coins from his birth-state of sanctity.
