Rabbi Walk at Congregation Agudath Sholom making Matzoh
STAMFORD, CT - The Men's Club at Congregation Agudath Sholom is hosting their annual Passover Holiday Fair. The event is on Sunday, March 10th from 12-4 pm at 301 Strawberry Hill Ave in Stamford. New this year is the opportunity to learn how to make matzoh, the flat unleavened bread eaten during the Passover holiday. Ingredients for making the matzoh were collected from an area organic farm and ground using a hand grinder at the synagogue. Children and adults are invited to learn the story of matzoh, learn to make the dough the way they did historically, roll the dough to eliminate bubbles, shape, bake and taste it! Everyone in the class gets to take home their own matzoh! Matzoh making class is $3 per person.
Exhibitors with Passover holiday related items, Jewish and Israeli cultural items, food, and wine tastings by BevMax are available to everyone of age. The Men's Club will feature their acclaimed chili along with fried chicken and side salads. The Sisterhood presents free cooking demonstrations by Aviva Kanoff, author of the award winning cookbook, the No Potato Passover. Admission is free to entire community. Activities and craft projects will be available for free for young children.
Proceeds from exhibitor sales will go to support the Men's Club outreach programs in the community. The Men's Club provides and serves food at area homeless shelters, organizes an annual canned food drive, hosts programs to encourage cultural education, and invites celebrities and local leaders to present lectures on key issues for the community.
Sam Goldstein, Past President of the Men's Club, hopes that the community will come and enjoy the fair and learn about the Passover holiday's unique traditions. Sam hopes to share with the community the answer to "Why is this holiday different from all other holidays?"
In partnership with Jewish Family Services, the community is asked to donate supermarket, gas or pharmacy gift cards and/or Passover food (i.e.; one box matzoh, gefilte fish, horseradish, macaroons, grape juice, soup mixes, canned and jarred food items, etc.) and bring to Congregation Agudath Sholom on March 10.
Volunteers from Jewish Family Services will deliver the collected items to over 200 of Stamford’s homebound and neediest people the week before Passover. Volunteers are needed to help make deliveries. Deliveries will be departing from the Kosher Food Pantry (733 Summer Street, 6th Floor) to any one of the 13 delivery routes in the Stamford area. Please contact Rita Halpert and/or Rebekah Kanefsky at JFS for details on becoming a delivery driver:(203)921-4161; email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. Or sign up at the JFS table at the Passover Fair.
