Here’s a Super-Easy Passover Recipe: Make Your Own Matzah

This Passover, which starts on April 8, is uncharted territory for many of us. Getting supplies for our Zoom seder — zeders, if you will — while we’re socially isolating because of coronavirus is tricky, to say the least. Many of us are finding it hard to get our usual staples, including the most important Passover food item: matzah.

Luckily, here at Kveller, we got an amazing expert to help us make them at home. Rabbi Ruth Abusch-Magder of Be’Chol Lashon has been making matzah at home for years, ever since her neighbor in Jerusalem showed her how she and her Sephardic family made them ahead of every Passover. (The truth is that there are still Jewish communities around the world that eat hand made matzah!).

On Wednesday, she came on Kveller’s Facebook to give us a live matzah-making demo. And, good news: It’s incredibly easy to do, and you need precious few ingredients or utensils.
