olive oil.jpgOlive Oil Press Demo | Monday, November 25, 2024 -  Thursday, January 2, 2025

This demonstration uses a rustic oil press and takes the children from selecting the olives to producing oil to light the Menorah, much like the Jews in the time of the Temple did. The process allows the children to see and feel fresh olives, build the olive press themselves, press the olives, produce oil and light the menorah before their very eyes!.

For children ages 3 – 13. Cost:  $14 per student.

Model Matzah Bakery | Wednesday, March 12 – Tuesday, April 8, 2025 

The popular Model Matzah Bakery gives each child the chance to make his or her own Matzah, as did our ancestors over 3,300 years ago and have continued to do every year since. From mixing the flour and the water to rolling the dough to baking the Matzahs, each child will be able to participate in every stage of the process. In addition, every student takes wheat stalks, threshes and winnows them and grinds the wheat into flour with our authentic hand mill. At the end of the (approximately) one hour tour, all children will receive a piece of hand baked Passover Shmura Matzah made in Israel.
For children ages 3 – 13. Cost: $14 per student.
