Matzah Bakery On The Go At Ivy League Campus

April 29, 2008
This Passover was the first to be held in the new temporary home of the Lubavitch House at the University of Pennsylvania, but as he’s done every year, Rabbi Levi Haskelevich kicked off holiday celebrations with a model matzah bakery in the center of campus. Held on the Ivy League school’s famed Locust Walk, the event one week before Passover drew a mix of students, who took time between classes to learn about the special status of hand-baked shmurah matzah. “That’s the Ford matzah,” Haskelevich said to one student, referencing ordinary matzah. “This is the Rolls Royce.” For the Seders themselves, some 50 students filled a tent for each of the two nighttime feasts.
