The post-Pesach Mimouna feast was held in Crown Heights by a group of bochurim of Moroccan descent, after hours of preparing mofeltta and other traditional foods.

The Mimouna celebration is held by communities originating in Morocco, Algeria and North Africa on Motzei Pesach, with a lavish spread of pastries, sweets and meats set out for family and guests.

The traditional food associated with Mimouna is the mofletta, a thin crêpe made from water, flour and oil. It fried until it is yellow-brown in color and then covered with butter, honey, syrup or jam.
