Break the middle matzah on the matzah plate. This is called the Yachatz --literally-- the breaking.

We break the matzah and hide one part (the Afikomen). We recognize that liberation is made by imperfect people, broken, fragmented — so don’t be waiting until you are totally pure, holy, spiritually centered, and psychologically healthy to get involved in tikkun (the healing and repair of the world). It will be imperfect people, wounded healers, who do the healing as we simultaneously work on ourselves.

-Rabbi Michael Lerner

Let me tell you a story about Matzah in suitcases.

In the words of the great Rabbi Kelly Clarkson, "What doesn't kill you, makes you stronger."
