An Orthodox man is employed to inspect the process of baking of unleavened bread (Matza) for the upcoming Jewish holiday of Passover in a religious community near Kiryat Gat April 13, 2008.

Women at a bakery near Kiryat Gat kneaded dough for unleavened bread for Passover. A judge has ruled that leavened bread can be sold during Passover.

Note how the bottom of the oven opening is expanded, allowing ample room to slide the matzas in and out. These matzas look nothing like the packaged stuff found in U.S. stores.

The yellow photo shows matzas being made in Chicago.
