Matzah is a hard, flat cracker-like bread made from flour and water. Matzah, originating in Jewish tradition, is also known as matzoh, matzo and matze, and is eaten during the Passover Seder at the SOS Children’s Village Arad in Israel!


While matzah is traditionally eaten during Passover, many people outside of the Jewish tradition also eat matzah, often with jam or butter as a midday snack.


Did you know?  Bread begins to leaven after 18 minutes. If the matzah is not placed in the oven within that time, it is not considered Kosher for Passover.
