Halachic pastry 

Here is a sweet initiative, with an additional advantage at its side. A joint project of the municipality, MATI – the Jerusalem Business Development Center, and a local pastry shop has enabled an introductory course for haredi women in pastry confectionery. The aim is to give tools to haredi women between the ages of 17 and 21 who come from a low socioeconomic background to achieve some financial success.
