A very cool matza idea

Wow, it’s always excited to hear an idea that I’ve never heard before.

This very cool idea (which I read in the Washington Post – On Faith) points out that matza is called lechem oni לחם עוני which means the bread of poverty but the word oni has the same letters as the word o’ne עונה which means, to answer. Pessach is a holiday of asking questions so the matza helps us on that conquest of also getting answers.

What an amazing connection, which I never noticed!
