Any matza bakery.March 19, 2013 7:23 pm at 7:23 pm #1010132YW Moderator-18Moderator
I would not do it this close to Pesach as they are madhouses this week. Next year go earlier and most will let you come. Some will even let you make an appointment to bake matzoh there and your kids can help with the baking. You don’t have to buy a lot of matzoh to do this, even a few pounds is okay.March 19, 2013 7:24 pm at 7:24 pm #1010133shtusimParticipant
It’s a bit hectic this close to Pesach to go and watch matza baking UNLESS the bakery is equipped for it. My chaburah went to bake this past Sunday. We were hampered by little kids going back and forth watching and getting in the way. its difficult to carry matzos to the ‘reidler” (hole maker)while dodging back and forth.
Then you have the issue of “helpers”. every kid over 8 or so wants to get into the action and help. the problem is, WE HAVE A CHABURAH for a REASON. we want to ensure that the baking is done according to our standards. Parents letting their kids “help” may work for them, but they’re MY matzos, not yours.

I agree with 18, the average bakery isn’t equipped; definitely don’t go to Shatzer unless you have their express permission. My kids went to Crown Heights with their school, but I don’t have any details about the bakery or how the school arranged it.April 2, 2014 1:38 am at 1:38 am #1010136👑RebYidd23Participant
Do it at home. Not real matzah, chametz matzah.
