FAIRFIELD - The Chabad of Fairfield taught children how to bake matzo Sunday as the community prepares for this year's Passover holiday.

The eight-day Jewish holiday begins Friday at sundown.

Traditionally, observers eat the Seder dinner, which includes drinking four cups of wine and eating unleavened matzo bread. 

The significance of the special bread is that when the Jewish people left Egypt, they did so with such haste that there wasn't enough time let their dough rise before baking.
