With Pesach on the horizon, we are very excited to announce the opening of our Mizrachi Matza factory. Our Matza factory with be producing hand-made KOSHER 18 minute Shmurah matzot to be used at your seder and over Pesach. Rabbi Blau and Rabbi David Katz will be giving the Kashrut supervision.
There are many details that go into baking kosher matza for Pesach. We are fortunate to have a special matza oven made by a family in Yerushalayim that has perfected their product over the past few decades. A kneading table, stainless steel rollers, dough docker\perforator, dough cutter, rolling tables, shmurah flour from New York and more are all being readied to bake our own delicious matza. Rabbi David Katz, who has been baking matza with his family and community in Israel for years, has spearheaded and will be overseeing the project. Feel free to contact Rabbi Katz with any questions about our operation (firstname.lastname@example.org).
When Can I Bake?
Community (Ed: open to the whole community) baking times will be available from 7-10pm on March 10-13 and 18-20. Please contact Ari Schwartz (email@example.com) to reserve a spot for your family. Each time slot will be 45 minutes which includes preparation and baking. Each participant will go home with one packaged kosher matza.
Our factory can handle a group of up to 15 workers per session. A minimum of 5 is required.Each member will have a complete hands on experience in making their family’s Matza. There are numerous jobs which include mixing, kneading rolling, riddling (holes), placing in and out of the oven, sanding poles and more! Making hand shmurah matza is an intense, authentic and fun communal experience.
Lower school children are welcome, but they MUST be supervised individually by an adult or high school age sibling to participate. The supervising parent or sibling will be required to work with the lower school student for the entire 18 minutes. Junior high and high school students are welcome to participate together with their families.
We are very excited about this and hope to see you and your family involved in this age old tradition. Don’t forget your camera!
