In honor of the Passover festival, the Matzot Aviv factory in Bnei Brak in central Israel baked the world's largest matzah.

Weighing in at 13.2 pounds (6 kilograms), the massive matzah was nearly 20 feet (six meters) long, 3.5 feet (1.06 meters) wide, and 0.16 inches (4 millimeters) thick.

The recipe for the record-breaking matzah included 15.4 pounds (seven kilograms) of flour and two liters of water. It had a total of 119,000 holes across its surface.

The Matzot Aviv bakery was founded in 1887 by the Wolf family in Neve Tzedek, and sells matzot, cookies, and other baked goods to over 30 countries around the world.
