  •  "The bread of affliction" (11+ / 0-)

    During the Seder, we refer to Matzah as "the bread of affliction" .

    And we literally break it as an important part of the ceremony - known as Yahchahtz. The middle matzah in a stack of 3 is broken, with the smaller half becomes the Afikoman, a symbolically important piece that is hidden for children to search for later, and which is ultimately divided among all the participants to be the last thing eaten during the Seder.

    Technically she's right about this -- we do "break bread" at a Seder.

    But she's still a crappy candidate running a crappy campaign.

    Once social change begins,it cannot be reversed. You cannot uneducate the person who has learned to read...You cannot oppress people who are not afraid anymore.
