MATZA - For the past many years Mrs. Webber, owner of the Chareidim Matzah Bakery in Boro Park, has been selling Matzah at a wholesale price to regular buyers of large order (like RDW) and whatever is left she sells at a retail price to people who come to bakery to purchase (if you think the wholesale price was high, you are right. And the retail price is even higher). Every year, the Rabbi takes orders from shul members and friends and sells the matzah to you at cost, plus a small fee per pound just to cover the costs of hooking a u-haul to his van and driving to NY to pick up the matza and bring it back to Pittsburgh (this matzah is so thin that it can't be sent by common carrier). The bakery owner has decided that she no longer will sell wholesale. Rather, any orders, even big orders, will be at the retail price. However, she will give a slight discount to her longtime customers. So, this year, the Rabbi is once again offering to take orders and to go and pick up the matza, but the prices will be at the bakery's retail price. The discount she will give him should cover the transportation costs. The prices for this year are listed below. As usual, ORDERS ARE DUE BY PURIM DAY (Sunday, March 12) and we will hold the matza in shul until closer to Pesach when you are ready to pick it up. Of course, Murray Avenue Kosher and Costco will have other matza for sale as usual, but you can decide for yourself if the thin, tasty matza we have been getting is worth the retail price. The prices for this year will be: Regular Matza - $32 per pound - Regular Broken Matza - $28 per pound - Whole Wheat Matza - $35 per pound - Broken Whole Wheat Matza - $32 per pound. ORDERS ARE DUE BY PURIM DAY (Sunday, March 12). ORDERS ARE ONLY CONFIRMED UPON RECEIVING PAYMENT. Please order by emailing or calling the shul office. The check can be made out to Shaare Torah Special Fund and marked "matza" in the memo. Since we are selling the matza at cost, if you wish to use a credit card or paypal to pay for the matzah there will be a fee added to the order (2.0%-3.5% depending on the credit card). Orders are due in 24 days (or less by the time you read this), so don't delay!
