About Shmurah Matzah
Matzah is a bread made of dough from wheat, barley, oats, spelt or rye, that was baked within 18 minutes from the moment the flour was mixed with water. This dough had no time to ferment, and it does not rise. Shmurah Matzah is a matzah baked from flour that was carefully guarded from dampness, from the moment of harvest. Ordinary matzah flour is only guarded from dampness, from the time it is milled. Shmurah Matzah is the preferred matzah for Pesach, especially for the Seder nights. Hand-baked Shmurah Matzah is the best matzah with which to fulfill the mitzvah of the Seder. Unlike machine matzah, which is shaped square, the hand-baked matzah is round.

Why Hand-Baked?
Baking matzah is a mitzvah. The matzah must be kneaded, rolled, and baked by a mature Jewish adult, who bakes it with the specific intention of using the matzah for the Seder. An automatic machine operation cannot introduce thought and intention into the baking; the genuine mitzvah is only fulfilled in a hand operation. The cost of hand-baked Matzah Shmurah is greater than machine matzah but it is well worth it!!
