Did you know...

~Only 10 factories in the world produce matzah--three in Israel, two in the US and the rest in Europe.

~For a matzah to be considered kosher (produced or prepared according to Jewish dietary laws) it cannot take more than 18 minutes in total to prepare and bake the flatbread.

~Each matzah has about 800 holes that prevent the dough from rising. Without the holes, you would get pita.

~ Matzot Aviv ships their product all over the world, including to the island of Wallis in the South Pacific, which is home to one Jew.

~The factory produces 26,000 matzahs per hour.

~Matzahs have only 120 calories each--it is what you put on them that adds up!
