Matzah (a.k.a. matzo, matza or matzah) is an unleavened flatbread that is part of the Jewish cuisine and forma and integral element of the Passover festival, during which chametz (leaven and five grains that, per Jewish law, can be leavened) is forbidden.

Matzah may be soft or crisp, but only the crisp “cracker” type is available commercially in most locations.

There are numerous explanations behind the symbolism of matzah. One is historical: Passover is a commemoration of the exodus from Egypt. The biblical narrative relates that the Israelites left Egypt in such haste they could not wait for their bread dough to rise. The other reason is symbolic: Matzah symbolizes redemption and freedom and it is also “poor man’s bread”. Thus it serves as a reminder to be humble, and to not forget what life was life in servitude.
