Film: Streit’s Matzo and the American Dream

April 13, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

At the American Jewish Historical Society. In the heart of New York’s rapidly gentrifying Lower East Side four tenements housed the Streit’s Matzo factory from 1925 to 2015.  An iconic New York institution and a fifth-generation family business, the Streit’s factory and the Streit family have long held firmly to tradition, churning flour and water into matzos through ovens as old as the factory itself.

This documentary film is a story of tradition, resistance and resilience, and a celebration of a family whose commitment to their heritage and to their employees is inspiring proof that the family that bakes together, stays together. Director Michael Levine and a Streit’s family member will conduct a Q&A following the film. This event takes place at the American Jewish Historical Society at 15 West 16th Street.
