A Passover Class
The requirement to eat bland, unleavened bread i.e. Matzah made exclusively from flour and water at the Seder, is unique to our observance. By contrast, at the original Seder in Egypt on the night before the Exodus, it was permissible to eat enriched matzah, i.e. flour mixed with fruit juice or egg. In explaining the reason for this difference, this class reveals the spiritual significance of matzah and its critical message for experiencing true personal growth.(Based on Likutei Sichos vol. 16, p. 122.)
