Shmurah - Handmade Matzah

  • What is Shmurah Matzah?

    Shmurah means "watched," and it is an apt description of this matzah, the ingredients and equipment are carefully watched from the moment of harvesting and drawing through the actual baking of the matzah, to ensure it is absolutely clean and dry from any contact with water.

    This intensive process and careful guarding gives the shmurah matzah an added infusion of faith and sanctity 

    Shmurah matzot are round, kneaded and shaped by hand, and are similar to the matzot that were baked by the Children of Israel as they left Egypt. It is thus fitting to use shmurah matzah on each of the two Seder nights for the matzot of the Seder plate.
