Careful With That Matzah! Packaging The Seder Necessity Throughout Jewish History

Annual lecture led by Rabbi Bolton In Memory of his father, Stewart L. Bolton, z”l, Packaging Engineer
Wednesday, March 31, 7:30 pm

From round to square, the history of the shape of matzah begets the question:
Which came first, the box or the board? What role did packaging play in ensuring matzah would be available for seder? Were there unique packages and dishes for matzah throughout Jewish history or just in the modern era? Do we find instructions not only about how to make it but how to store it?

We will examine Torah, Talmud and Responsa literature, as well as the history annals regarding Passover Judaica to consider the boxes and not just the boards of matzah.
