For the love of matzo by @mgwine

An old friend from NYC is making a documentary about the Streit’s matzo factory on the Lower East Side. He asked me to share news of the film and I’m glad to do it.

During the years I spent in the city (97-07), I watched the Jewish culture of the Lower East Side be swallowed up by the neighborhood’s yuppification. The Streit’s factory is one of the last outposts of Yiddish life there.
