During the Feast of Passover, people from every Jewish family, whether in their homeland or in Diaspora are preparing their houses and clean out and remove all the leavened bread and prepare to eat the “Matzah”, one of the obligations and precepts that the Jews should observe during the entire week of Passover. Every Jew is commanded to fulfill this obligation teaching also their children to do the same thing.
Moral Implication of Eating Matzah
Matzah is a Hebrew word for Unleavened Bread that is prepared and eaten in the Passover Seder. This bread is simply made up of flour and water which is baked in the oven. It is one of the most superior ritual items and ingredients in all the Jewish Festivals.
The picture of eating a Matzah depicts selfless humility and unpretentious, becoming willing to go beyond what he desires and take a step to fulfill what God wants to do. God intended to include this custom, as a memorial for all the Jews that in humility and submission to God they are able to obtain what God has committed to them rather than becoming stubborn and prideful which will only cause them to be in bondage and desolation.
