matzo definition and meaning

What is "matzo"?

Matzo, also known as unleavened bread, is a type of flatbread that is popular in Jewish cuisine and is traditionally eaten during Passover. It is made from a simple mixture of flour and water, which is then rolled out into thin disks and baked at a high temperature until it becomes crisp and cracker-like. Matzo is an important symbol in Jewish culture, representing the unleavened bread that the Israelites ate during their hasty departure from Egypt. During Passover, it is forbidden to eat leavened bread, so matzo is eaten instead. Matzo can be eaten plain or used in a variety of dishes, such as matzo ball soup or matzo brei, a dish similar to French toast. It is a beloved staple of Jewish cuisine and can be found in many grocery stores, bakeries, and cafes in Jewish communities around the world.
