Matzah Bakery Information

The Program: 

Passover will become more meaningful when children have a chance to dig into the dough as they:

· Produce flour from wheat kernels, winnow, and separate the chaff from the grain.

· Collect the grain into a hand-driven wheat mill and grind it into flour.

· Knead, roll, and bake the dough into a handmade matzah in the required amount of time.

Delight in taking home their very own freshly baked matzah, a baker's hat, and a Shmurah Matzah for their family Seder table.

The children will learn about and participate in the Matzah baking process, including mixing the flour and water, rolling, kneading, “poking” the dough and finally baking their own Matzah. They will be taught the meaning behind the Mitzvah. There is an optional video presentation available – recommended for older children. (Video machine not provided).
