Streit’s: Matzo and the American Dream

Sunday, March 26, 2:00 p.m.

About the Program

In New York’s Lower East Side, four tenement buildings have housed the Streit’s Matzo factory since 1925. Over five generations, the Streit’s family business has held firmly to tradition, but even they are not immune to the forces that challenge small businesses everywhere.

Feast your eyes on this inspiring documentary as it traces the history of Streit’s from the 1920s to today. As Los Angeles Times hails, “this lively and engaged documentary lives up to its name.”

Directed by Michael Levine. (2016, 75 min. No MPAA rating.)
