Matzah covers not only beautify and magnify the significance of a table properly set for a Seder, they have a functional purpose too. While bread is
traditionally “removed” from the table while the wine is blessed and until it is served, matzah has a special status due to its association with the
liberation of the Hebrews from Egypt. Matzah is temporarily removed, but as the story of Hebrew slavery in Egypt is recounted, the matzah is revealed. This
tradition stems from a Hebrew term for the unleavened bread, “lechem oni,” or “bread unto which truth is spoken.” The matzah enjoys its place in the
spotlight during this legendary tale, but a matzah cover provides a decorative touch during other parts of the Seder ceremony. Zion Judaica is pleased to
offer its customers an extensive selection of attractive matzah covers to suit any taste.
