Shmurah Matzah for Student Seders

We are pleased to provide student-led Seders with Shmurah Matzah. This artisanal flatbread is hand-rolled and hearth-baked. It is an excellent addition to any Seder, and it is available to students and faculty as our gift, while supplies last, thanks to dedicated supporters.
