Goodbye to bread

Enjoy it while you can. From this Friday until the end of next week (most) Jews will not be tasting any bread at all.
Instead, during the whole week of Passover we will eat "the bread of affliction," matza.
Here you see the huge Angel Bakeries--the silos, flour mill, production lines.
Angel distributes its loaves and rolls all over the country and also supplies the prisons and the Israel Defense Force.

No bread for a week? I would be hungry. Interesting though, and this place must make a whole lot of bread! I bet it is good, too.

Actually, I rather like matzas.

I never knew that people abstained from bread during passover. Thanks for sharing the story!

(I'd struggle without bread, I love it!)
