matzah definition and meaning

What is "matzah"?

Matzah is an unleavened bread that is a crucial part of Jewish cuisine and tradition. It is made from a mixture of flour and water that is quickly kneaded and baked without any rising agents, resulting in a flat and crispy bread. Matzah has a symbolic meaning in Jewish culture, representing the unleavened bread that the Israelites ate during their exodus from Egypt. It is traditionally eaten during Passover, a week-long holiday that commemorates the liberation of the Israelites from slavery in Egypt. During Passover, it is forbidden to eat any leavened bread, so matzah is eaten instead. Matzah can be eaten plain or used in a variety of dishes, such as matzah ball soup or matzah brei, a dish similar to French toast. Matzah is a beloved staple of Jewish cuisine and can be found in many grocery stores, bakeries, and cafes in Jewish communities around the world.
