Hands-on Model Matzah Factory coming to Ocala


Local children will participate in a hands-on pre-Passover experience as a Model Matzah Factory is set up for them in Ocala on Sunday, March 22, at 1 p.m. at The Chabad Jewish Center, 3509 SW 34th Ave. Circle.

The children will re-enact the process of manufacturing matzah, from grinding the flour to kneading the dough, to baking the matzahs on a stone oven, all within 18 minutes, the time limit in which matzah must be made.

Chabad Rabbi Yossi Hecht, director of the Chabad-Lubavitch Jewish Center of Marion County and The Villages, will facilitate the interactive program. The event is by RSVP only (It is critical to note that the matzah produced at the Model Matzah Factory are not to be used on Passover, actual Passover Matzah needs to be manufactured in a highly controlled environment to ensure that it does not become leavened. Hand-made matzah for Passover is available for purchase)

Additional information about the Passover holiday is available at http://www.JewishMarion.org/Passover.
