Soft Matzah Bakery in San Diego 5783/2023

Sunday, March 12, 2023 19 Adar 5783

All DayKehillat Shaar HaShamayim

We are making history in San Diego once again! Soft Matzah is coming back to town!

The History
Every year we reach the famous words in the "Korech" section of the Haggadah:

"In memory of the Temple according to Hillel. This is what Hillel would do when the Temple existed: He would wrap the Matzah and Marror and eat them together, in order to fulfill what is stated, (Exodus 12:15): "You should eat it upon Matzot and Marrorim."

How do you wrap a thin, crunchy cracker? You can't!

So how did Hillel do it? He ate soft Matzah, which is the original form of unleavened bread that our forefathers and mothers ate. The best part is that this Matzah is Kasher for Pesach for both Sepharadim and Ashkenazim!

The News
We have once again secured a shipment of special Shemurah Matzah flour, and are setting up a Matzah bakery on Sunday, March 31st - and are asking you for help to make it happen!

A number of families have already joined us in donating $100 or $180 to the Matzah effort, and - aside from the tremendous Mitzvah of sponsoring this effort - will receive fresh Matzot for their Seder!

Want To Join?
We are reaching out to offer you this tremendous oppurtunity - do you want to sponsor $100 or $180 and make history?

Please let me know as soon as you can by responding to this email and/or clicking the link above!

Also, please respond to this email to let me know if you will be able to help us volunteer at the bakery on baking day!

Wishing you a holiday of true freedom - and soft Matzah!

Rabbi Yonatan Y. Halevy

PS At this point in time, we will not be selling Matzah - it will be reserved for our sponsors to pick-up only, and for use at Kehillat Shaar HaShamayim holiday meals.

PPS  If you have wish to join in the baking process at our Matzah bakery, you are asked to please attend a mandatory seminar at Kehillat Shaar HaShamayim on Thursday night, March 28th at 7:00pm to study all the relevant laws and customs of this fascinating process. 


Sponsor - Soft Matzah Bakery (includes Matzot for the Seder)

We are unable to ship Matzot at this time. You are welcome to pick up locally or arrange for your own overnight shipping

In addition to the sponsorship above, you can choose to donate any additional sum to enable others to join this Mitzvah
