Why 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.

Why Handmade?
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. Unlike machine matzah, which are shaped square, handmade matzah is round and is the preferred matzah with which to fulfill the mitzvah of the Seder. The cost of handmade Matzah is greater than machine Matzah but it is well worth it!
