Pictures, Video & Report of the Model Matzah Bakery 2013

IMG_8645.JPGThis past Sunday, over 150 people joined Chabad of Sudbury's annual Model Matzah Bakery  and Passover Experience.  The event which drew dozens of young families from the Sudbury and Greater Boston area was very well received by the participants who had come from far and wide.

Just last Sunday I spent some time cleaning out my garage while doing some initial preparations for Passover, and as I did so I was looking outside and thinking of Spring that I felt was literally around the corner. I love each of the seasons for different reasons, but Spring and Summer are definitely my favorites, as I love the blooms, the abundant richness of growth that we find in the beautiful nature around us, and the sunshine and warmth that comes with these seasons. 

Passover is meant to be in the Spring… Read More »
