In a special project in honor of the upcoming holiday of Passover, students in the Noam yeshiva high school in Jerusalem joined together to bake hundreds of matzot.

Jews eat matzah, unleavened bread, on Passover, as was done at the Exodus from Egypt, when the Jews did not have enough time to wait for dough to rise before leaving.

Passover begins at sunset on Friday, April 6.

Arutz Sheva visited the Noam yeshiva high school and spoke with the students, who all expressed their excitement over the project. The students said that baking matzah was an excellent extension of their studies about Passover, its laws and customs.
