Motzi Matza

The matzah that we eat on Passover has an even greater signi!cance than mere historical reminiscence. It is truly the bread of affliction, bread that was not eaten in luxury. For the people driven through the desert seeking God through great hardships and difficulty it was the very stuff of life - the foundation upon which they built their future. It is this same bread that we bring into our comfortable homes and our worldly lives. us it serves as a reminder to us that we are to be judged not by the opulence in which we live but by the ideals towards which we strive. 

Baruch Atah Adonai, Eloheinu Melech ha-olam, ha-motzi lechem min ha-aretz.

We praise You, God, who brings forth bread from the earth.
