Don't passover Passover

    WARWICK-Shoprite in Chester, Monroe and Warwick will be bringing Passover awareness to Orange County by opening its supermarket doors to Rabbi Meir and Rivkie Borenstein for their model matzah bakery. The program is one way many can prepare for the Passover holiday that recalls and celebrates the liberation of the Jews in Egypt 3,000 years ago. The model matzah bakery also offers children and adults alike the unique experience of baking Matzah, the traditional food eaten on Passover. As the passage goes, the Jews had to leave Egypt in a hurry and had no time to let their dough rise. It ended up a flat cracker - just like a Matzah. That is why Jews, Borenstein said, eat the matzah the whole Passover holiday - "to remember the Jews experience." The model matzah bakery is an interactive, hands-on experience for the entire family. The model bakery happens on Sunday: at the Chester Shoprite from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., then in Monroe from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m and finally in Warwick from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m.
