Matza’s Mixed Message: Are We Victors or Victims?

Although there are innumerable themes relating to Passover, there is one central motif to the Pesach Seder: Slavery and Freedom.

All the various items on our Seder table relate either to our century-plus bondage in Egypt, or to our liberation and subsequent journey to Israel. The Maror (bitter herbs), the salt water into which we dip our Karpas (vegetable) and the Charoset – meant to simulate the mortar used for building – all hint to our enslavement; while the Four Cups of wine and the festive meal clearly celebrate our emergence as a free people.

Ah, but what of the mysterious Matza; what does IT signify?

On the one hand, the Matza represents our desire to faithfully follow God and Moses at the moment our Exodus began; we were in such an ecstatic rush to exit that we could not even wait for our dough to rise. As such, the Matza is a kind of “unleavened flag” that we wave in tribute to our triumphant emergence into freedom. On the other hand, though, we refer to Matza as Lechem Oni, “poor-bread,” indicative of the meager fare that we were forced to eat as slaves. Matza, it seems, has two very distinct sides to it.
