— Local children prepared for Passover at the hands-on "Model Matzah Bakery" at Chabad of Orange County.

More than 100 people, including 75 kids, spent a morning making matzah they can eat from wheat stalks.

Rabbi Meir and Rivkie Borenstein of Chabad thank the Goshen school district for its cooperation and partnership.
