Brighton, N.Y. – Jewish children got a little food for thought Sunday afternoon.
They learned how to make matzah, the unleavened bread traditionally eaten at Passover, which is March 25 – April 2 this year.
Chabad Lubavitch in Brighton puts on the Model Matzah Bakery every year, teaching the holiday’s history and how to make the bread.
"We want the kids to really feel very special on Passover, so this is geared toward them,” Rabbi Nechemia Vogel said. “They have this fun experience learning about the holiday and the difference between matzah and regular bread, and there's no better way to learn than to have fun while you learn."
This marks the 31st year for the model bakery, which is open until Thursday.
