What are the Three Matzots?
During the Seder three matzots are placed in a bag then on the Seder Plate in honor of Kohen, Levi, and Yisraelite, the only Tribes recognized today, as a means of distinguishing them from each other.
The top matzah is referred to as Kohen, for the Kohen takes precedence in all matters.
The middle matzah referred to as Levi and broken into two at the beginning of the Seder. The smaller piece is left on the plate and is later eaten along with the Kohen matzah in fulfillment of the mitzvah of matzah; the larger piece is put away for use as the afikoman.
The bottom matzah, Yisraelite is used for making the korech (the tenth step of the Passover Seder is eating matzah and maror combined in a sandwich.), so that every one of the matzot is used for the performance of a mitzvah.
