In the Model Matzah Bakery, children learn how Shmurah Matzah is made - literally from "scratch". Dressed in baker's hats, the children learn that wheat is made by first threshing and winnowing the kernels, after which the grinding and sifting process takes place. The children are then 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. 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. (however, these will not be for kosher for Pesach).

Since the Matzah that the children produce themselves will not be kosher for Passover, parents are encouraged to contact Bais Menachem to order boxed, full-sized, delicious Shmura Matzah for the Pesach Seder. The Model Matzah Bakery is guaranteed to generate excitement for Pesach and a renewed appreciation of Matzah Shmurah!
