This beautiful blue glass Matza Plate is a beautiful representation of the crossing of the sea and a meaningful way to serve Matza during Passover with great significance. Decorated with the word “Matza” in silver Hebrew text at the centre and a surface painted with different shades of blue and silver lines that look waves that bring the sea theme to life with vivid imagery and makes for a truly memorable piece of Judaica art.
Matza is the special unleavened bread eaten by Jews during Passover that has historic and symbolic gestures. It is historic, when eaten at Passover, as it serves as a commemoration of the exodus from Egypt. It symbolises freedom and redemption as well as serving as a lesson in humility. The wavy lines give it a sea feel to commemorate the crossing of the red sea by the Jews in order to escape the pharaoh and his army.
