About the Model Matzah Bakery

In this fun and educational experience, participants dressed in baker's hats, will experience the 18 minute journey of the Matzah from threshing and winnowing the wheat stalks to watching their fresh Matzah pop right out of an authentic Matzah oven. Each child will take home an individually boxed, full-sized, delicious Shmurah Matzah that is Kosher for Passover.

The Model Matzah Bakery   is guaranteed to bring an exciting educational experience to the Jewish community of Sudbury and the surrounding towns.  The Model Matzah Bakery features wheat stalks, brick ovens, millstones, etc. which are all setup to form an old style Matzah Bakery.

In the Model Matzah Bakery, children learn how the traditional Shmurah Matzah is made - literally from "scratch". Dressed in baker's hats, children start from threshing and winnowing natural wheat stalks, separating the wheat from the chaff.

By crushing the brittle wheat, participants effectively thresh the wheat, breaking up the chaff and wheat grain.   Next, the children winnow, or separate the whole wheat grains from the near weightless chaff on the spot. 

Now the children collect the accumulated wheat grain into rustic hand-driven millstones that really have the look and feel of 1000 years ago.  In an exciting competition, the children grind the wheat grain into flour.

The resulting whole flour is sifted and separated into fine flour, and wheat germ.  Then the children are ready to begin to mixing the flour and water into Matzah dough.

Once the 18 minute clock starts the children quickly mix and knead the dough.  Then the dough is rolled out, and riddled full of holes with special Matzah perforators.  Now the Matzot are rushed to the "brick" oven in the hope of baking the entire batch of Matzot in just 18 minutes.

While the Matzah bakes, participants serve themselves a refreshing cup of cold grape juice out of real oak barrels. The resulting Matzah and grape juice will then be used in a concluding mini-model Seder.

Since the Matzah that the children produce themselves will not be kosher for Passover each child will take home an individually boxed, full-sized, delicious Shmurah Matzah that is Kosher for Passover. The boxes will also include the Four Questions as well as a Pesach Guide.
