Huge matzah helps launch new bakery

Manischewitz rolled out what it called a “monster matzah” June 14 to celebrate the opening of its new headquarters and manufacturing plant in Newark, N.J.

The enormous piece of unleavened bread measured just over 25 feet long and 411⁄2 inches wide and weighed about 25 pounds. That’s equal to more than 330 standard matzahs.

A chief rabbi from Israel offered a blessing before the matzah was divvied up and distributed to guests at the event. — ap
