May 4th 2015-Streit’s Matzo, a renowned matzo brand, will be leaving its home of 90 years on the Lower East Side of Manhattan this year. This Spring marked the last time Passover matzo will be produced in this location. The company will move to a larger and more updated facility somewhere else in New York, with prospective locations including Orange County or Westchester. The new location should be finalized by June, marking an end to almost a century for Streit’s on Rivington Street. Rabbi Mayer Kirshner, one of the Rabbis employed by the factory, provided a tour of the historic facility and offered insight into the trademark production process.
