On Sunday March 25, local children participated in a pre-Passover experience at a Model Matzah Factory in Bayside.
Children were able to partake in the process of making Matzah from start to finish. Matzah is a bread consumed during Passover. With an 18-minute time limit, they ground flour, kneaded dough, and baked the Matzahs on a stone oven.
The Passover is an eight-day Jewish festival celebrated from Friday, March 30 until Friday, April 6. To learn more about the Passover, click HERE .
The event was free of charge and put on by the Friendship Circle, a division of Lubavitch of Wisconsin, an organization that helps people with special needs find support, friendship, and inclusion. Chabad Rabbi Levi Stein, director of the organization, helped facilitate the program.
