— 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. Matzah is an unleavened flatbread and an important part of Passover, when leavened bread is forbidden. Rabbi Meir and Rivkie Borenstein of Chabad thank the Goshen school district for its cooperation and partnership.
