Matzah Means So Many Things

What is matzah and why is it important during Passover? Learn about how matzah is made and why it is a special symbol of freedom for Jewish families everywhere. Matzah means so many things – food; freedom; liberation and more!


The first half of this book provides a somewhat poetic exploration of the unleavened bread known as matzah, cleverly employing all five senses to help young children imagine what the food is like. She explains that matzah can be round or square, but it’s always flat; she likens its color to lemon, ice cream, butter, almonds, and honey and explains that when it’s

eaten, it’s “crispy and crummy…munchy and crunchy.” Matzah ball soup can also be heard, when boiling, and matzah can be smelled when baking. The book’s second half explains the heritage and traditions surrounding matzah, including its role in the story of the Jewish liberation from Egypt and how it’s “central to Passover.” Matzah is effectively shown to be more than just food-it’s also a symbol of “freedom”. – Kirkus Reviews
