Matzah is the traditional unleavened bread eaten at Pesah (Passover). The very first Passover meal, called a Seder, is commemorated with the eating of Matzah because the ancient Hebrews had no time to let their bread leaven before fleeing Egypt. Therefore, the only bread they had at the Seder was unleavened.

  The Matzah Cover plays a vital role in today’s Passover Seders. Inside the Matzah Cover are three compartments to hold three sheets of maztah. These three sheets of matzah symbolize the three groups of ancient Hebrew society: Cohen, Levite, and Israelite. Each sheet also has a name and a meaning: the top called the Keter (Crown), the middle called the Hochmah (Wisdom) and the bottom called Binah (Intellect).   What is the significance of the three matzahs at Passover? During their time in the desert the Ancient Hebrews collected, something called manna – bread from heaven. Just before each Shabbat they collected a double amount of manna. The top and bottom sheets of matzah represent this collection of double manna. The middle matzah represents the Exodus and the destitution they experienced in the desert. At the beginning of the Seder meal, this matzah is broken and half eaten and half placed in the Afikomen to save the rest for another meal.
