Passover highlights Streit’s family matzo business

The Jewish holiday of Passover is coming. With it also means the return of matzo (or “matzah”), a hallmark staple of Jewish cuisine and culture.

“Streit’s: Matzo and the American Dream” arrives just in time for Passover: Monday, April 22, at 9 p.m. on Arizona PBS. The hourlong film spotlights the iconic Streit’s factory in New York, a fifth-generation family business that resiliently stays true to tradition, churning water into flour using ovens as old as the factory itself.

It’s a story of tradition, resistance and resilience, a celebration of the family whose commitment to their heritage and their employees is proof that the family that bakes together, stays together.
