    General view of wheat field. Chief Rabbi of Amsterdam Schuster out in the wheat field inspecting the ears at close hand. The Rabbi inspects the mowing machine prior to harvesting, he must make sure everything is clean. The Rabbi stands on the harvester as it moves through the field and he inspects grain. The grain is bagged up and the Rabbi watches and puts a seal on each sack.

    Under Rabbi supervision the dough material is made and prepared. In the bakery the flat dough moves along conveyor and gets large round shapes cut out. They then pass through ovens and come out baked. Shots of the pile of unleavened bread on the table.
