What do you think of when you hear the word Passover (Pesach)?

Matzah, cleaning, guests, cooking, more matzah?

Over the years, (decades actually), I’ve hosted thousands of people for Passover seders at GAM GAM Kosher Restaurant and our Chabad House in Venice, Italy. Yet, the thing I think about the most is myself.

Sort of.

In the days leading up to Passover, I think about myself, but probably not in the way it sounds.  It’s more about being like matzah (aka matzo).

Matzah – Traditional Passover Food or Something More?

Matzah is flat and unleavened. It hasn’t had a chance to rise like the dough of typical bread.  Bread, which rises and inflates, represents ego. Matzah represents selflessness, otherwise known in Hebrew as “bittul.”

The literal meaning of bittul is self-nullification. Yet, bittul doesn’t mean that we have to think of ourselves as nothing. (Here’s where the matzah comes in and teaches us a lesson about ourselves). Matzah reminds us that as we go about bettering our lives and the world around us, we can do it in a way that transcends self-concern. We can be more humble.

During the holiday prep, the seders and all the matzah crunching, I can’t help but be reminded how important it is to work on myself. And, I know that if I give it my all during the eight days of Passover, then those efforts will set a strong foundation for the rest of the year.
