I was invited to go on a private media tour of the Manischewitz Matzah factory in Newark, New Jersey. They are at the end of their Shmura Matzoh run for the Passover season, 2012, and allowed us in to watch as they made the last few batches (or few thousand boxes) of shmura matzoh. Next week, when most of us Jews are turning our kitchens over to ready-for-Passover dishes and utensils, the Manischewitz factory will already be turning thier Kosher-for-Passover factory back to year-round, non-passover status (not to worry, they shut down the entire week of Passover)!
With my handy iPhone 4, I was able to take some magnificent pictures and videos of the matzoh making process in their new state-of-the-art facility. I’ve compiled them into a photo-journal for your enjoyment.
