LEADER: (Places before him the three wrapped Matzos from the Seder Plate.) I now perform the ceremony of "Yachatz." I shall break the middle Matzoh in two, removing one half and setting it aside. This will become the "Afikomen," the dessert, to be eaten at the conclusion of our meal.

(Breaks middle Matzoh. Wraps half in napkin. Places it under pillow, or in any other convenient place. Children will later remove this piece of Matzoh, hide it, and request gifts for its return.)
