There are three matzot under the cover. We now uncover them, break the middle matzah in half. We put the larger piece - the afikomen , which means dessert, into a cloth. One of us puts the afikomen on our shoulder and says:
"This is the bread of poverty which our ancestors ate in the land of Egypt. All who are hungry, come and eat! We hope that the coming year will bring a better life for everyone."
We hide the afikomen in a safe place and find it after the meal. We cover the remaining matzot.
