The tradition of unleavened bread
When the Israelites were fleeing Egypt, they had to leave so quick that the bread could not rise.
So, they had to eat unleavened bread (meaning that the yeast has not risen) on their run from a malicious ruler.
In one sense, the recipe of today reminds Christians and Jews of a difficult past.
But for the Jews, it has a stronger meaning; it connects with their diaspora (which has been a recurring theme throughout the entire Jewish history).
That's why the Matzah (unleavened bread) is so often eaten by Jews on big feasts like Passover.
Another meaning of Matzah is slightly more intrinsic: the unleavened yeast symbolizes a humble soul.
As yeast rises, it starts to reflect a bragging personality. An overbearing person, who fills the room with their bloated ego.
