Jews prepare matzo ?for Passover

  • PHOTO COURTESY OF CHABAD OF VENICE -- Rabbi Schmerling, center back, assists in the packing of more than 400 boxes of “Shmurah” Matzahs to be used by local Jews in their celebration of Passover, celebrated this year from Friday night, April 3, until after nightfall on Saturday, April 14. The holiday commemorates the exodus of the Jews from Egypt in 1313 BCE. Directed by G-d to leave Egypt hastily, the people of Israel could not wait for their dough to rise, and thus ate unleavened crackers called 'Matzah.' -- Round, kneaded and shaped by hand, present day “Shmurah” Matzahs are similar to those eaten by the Jews more than 3,000 years ago. From the moment the wheat is harvested, the ingredients are carefully watched to ensure that they do not become leavened, which would be prohibited on Passover.The local event is part of an international initiative to create awareness and promote observance of the holiday. This year an estimated four million hand-baked Shmurah Matzahs will be distributed throughout the world by the Chabad-Lubavitch movement.
