Renaissance Jews And The Bread of Resilience
How did Italian Renaissance Jews make their matzah? I found a recipe!
Join me on this journey of making matzah and learning about Jewish
history. #renaissancejews #dsathreads #makingmatzah
It was such a pleasure connecting with my Jewish roots and learning about Italian Renaissance Jews once again, this time for Passover. Jewish foods for pesach are definitely very symbolic and Matzah is no exception.
