We hide a piece of matzah to remind us of the poor who dare not eat without setting aside some food for the next meal.  We break the matzah to remind us that we must set aside some of our own food for those who go hungry today

This is the bread of poverty and affliction that our ancestors ate in the land of Egypt.  Let all who are hungry come and eat with us.  Let all who are in need come and share a meal.  This year we are here.  Next year may we be in Jerusalem.  This year we are slaves. Next year may we all be free.

(Break the middle matzah and hide the Afikomen – the larger half)
