FILM SCREENING: Streit’s Matzo and the American Dream
Running Time: 83 minutes
In the heart of New York’s rapidly gentrifying Lower East Side stand four tenement buildings that housed the Streit’s Matzo factory since 1925. An iconic New York institution and a fifth generation family business, the Streit’s factory and the Streit family itself have long held firmly to tradition. Though the factory seems a century removed from the world around it, even Streit’s is not immune from the forces that challenge manufacturing and family businesses everywhere. Matzo and the American Dream is a story of tradition, of resistance and resilience, and a celebration of a family whose commitment to their heritage and to their employees is inspiring proof that the family that bakes together, stays together.
