Valley Chabad Hebrew School Students Visit Matzah Bakery

(Courtesy of Valley Chabad) Students from the bar mitzvah group at Valley Chabad in Woodcliff Lake paid a visit to a shmura matzah bakery in Rockland County on March 27.

The students got to experience the painstaking process that goes into baking the matzah properly in accordance with Jewish traditions.

The entire process from when the flour and water mix through completion of baking must be within 18 minutes to ensure the dough doesn’t rise.

The coal and wood-burning oven is heated to 1,200 degrees and each matzah is baked for about 20 seconds.

Matzah is an unleavened flatbread that is part of Jewish cuisine and forms an integral element of the Passover Seder observed on Friday and Saturday nights, April 15 and 16 this year.
