What is the Afikoman?

Alongside the Seder Plate are three whole matzos. At the start of the Seder service, the middle matzah is broken into two and the larger piece, called Afikoman, is placed in a special cloth or bag and set aside to be eaten at the end of the evening. The long-cherished custom is for the children to take the afikoman, hide it and only return it after being promised a gift of their choice.

The Afikoman Cover

There are many reasons for the afikoman hiding and bargaining but what is most important is that the Matzah be kept clean and should be clearly identified and not confused with the other matzahs on the table or in the home. That is why a special bag is used to hold the afikoman matzah.

The Afikoman Message

The Afikoman carries a meaningful message. On this night, as we celebrate our redemption from Egypt, we must remember that we are still in exile. Putting on one side the larger half of the Matzah is a reminder that the best part of the redemption, hidden in the future, is still to come.
