The Eight Days of Eating During Passover
Commemorating not getting killed by a plague after going through a plague is about as Jewish as you can get. With that in mind, the Passover holiday begins the evening of April 5th and runs until April 13th. Take a break and let area restaurants assist with this year's Seder. Gather the family around the table and just figure out who is asking the Four Questions:
Gluten-Free Oat & Handmade Wheat Matzah from Baked by Yael
Baked by Yael is offering Gluten-Free Oat Matzah once again in handmade rustic rounds, machine squares, and matzah meal ground from machine matzah.

They are also offering Handmade Wheat Matzah from the famous Kehilath Yakov Pupa & Zehlem Matzo Bakery in Brooklyn, New York. This round matzah is rolled by hand and baked in a wood-fired oven under the strictest rabbinic supervision.
