Passover Fact #2 – Why is Matzoh eaten during Passover


Only foods that are “Kosher for Passover” are allowed. No leavened (containing yeast) foods or grains are eaten. In their place matzoh and foods containing matzoh are eaten. This is to commemorate the Israelites who fled quickly into the desert with no time for their breads to rise and were forced to bake the dough into hard crackers in the desert sun. *
