pesachim 36

when matza is described as lechem oni - what is meant by calling it pauper's bread? can it be made with food one eats in times of happiness?

rather matza should be made with food that is appropriate for a mourner in deepest grief would eat.

if they can eat anything when they are cracking apart....

(this is dedicated to D & M. dear friends who, while the rest of the world was going a little silly over a baby born to a happy royal couple in London, were mourning the loss of their baby... 
the food that cracks and crumbles goes to the couple in deepest grief... hope you guys find nourishment to sustain you. shabbat shalom x)
