Lies Of My Youth: Part 2

img_6300

Each year, as I review the Halachot of Pesach, I am bitter about many of the lies I was taught as a child.

One of the more bitter moments though, is of my teachers preaching to us that “Matzot” are hard, stale crackers.

As I look at the words of the Torah and Poskim again, it is obvious that the original Matzah which our forefathers ate was soft, pita/laffa-like bread.

What will we do to ensure that others don’t force their new traditions on our children?
