Destination:     France

Country of Origin:     Israel

Most people do not know this, but the export of matzo from Israel to the overseas communities in the world ahead of Passover, begins in December. This in order to ensure that the matzot arrive well in advance of the holiday. One yea,r 10 days before Passover, we received an emotional plea to urgently export matzos to the Jewish community in Paris, due to a shortage of matzo. This because the winter was a very harsh and cold one in Europe and was accompanied by heavy snows.
We checked a number of routes, checked with several shipping companies for possible timetables for shipping to different ports. We examined the possibility of sending the shipment to the port of Marseilles, then by truck to Paris, but it seemed that the shipment would arrive too late for the Seder. Finally we found an original solution. We sent the matzos to the Port of Koper in Slovenia, from where the matzot arrived in Paris in three days, and from there they continued by truck for two days to Paris. Thus the Matzot arrived safely to the Jews of Paris two days before the Seder, and we were happy that we had succeeded in helping them celebrate a kosher and happy Passover
