Yesterday’s post was on Chametz, the bread and character traits that limit us. ¬†The next them is Matzah.
I also hinted at yesterday, that Matzah is the bread made quickly, and symbolically related to our zeal to do Mitzvot.
I find it interesting that we enjoy Shabbat with slowly prepared Challah, but we enter Shabbat with haste. ¬†There are always last minute things to do. ¬†Showers to take, dishes to get into the oven and the hot plate to set up. ¬†We are very much like Matzah, moving quickly to get all the jobs done.
I get to candle lighting and force myself to slow down, take a moment, put money in the Tzedakah box and breathe. ¬†Then I pick up the match and light the Shabbat candles.
