The Chabad Jewish Center will be once again hosting the Model Matzah Bakery workshop on Sunday, March 25, at 2 p.m.
This Model Matzah Bakery is an exciting, hands-on educational workshop and fun experience for the entire family. Participants will experience and relive the story, history and art of Matzah Baking by hand. This multimedia event features rolling pins; brick ovens; hole makers; flour; water and many hands all designed to bring to life the old style, wood burning Matzah Bakery of yesteryear, still very much in use today at select hand-made Matza bakeries.
Dressed in baker's hats, participants will assist in the entire process of baking handmade Passover Matzah from start to oven-fresh finish; which will include kneading, rolling and perforating dough, until finally a piping hot, oven fresh Matzah is produced. Following the making of the Matzah baking, participants will learn how flour is made with a wheat grinding presentation, and join in a model Passover Seder as they enjoy their crunchy hot Matzah, with grape juice.
Participants will have the unique opportunity of an interactive, educational and fabulously fun experience that will add to the holiday spirit. You can also learn about the history of Passover and collect tips for the Passover Seder.
The Model Matzah Bakery Workshop will be held Sunday March 25 at 2 p.m. at the Mansfield Holiday Inn hotel, 31 Hampshire Street in Mansfield. The program is scheduled for 2 p.m. and will last slightly more than an hour.
