Matzo Madness from Balls to Dolls

Matzo (also referred to as matza or matzah) is an unleavened flatbread that is part of Jewish cuisine and forms an integral element of the Passover festival. “The bread of affliction” has numerous explanations behind its symbolism, one of which is historical: Passover is a commemoration of the exodus from Egypt. Over time (in this case, we’re talkin’ centuries), matzo and matzoballs have become a pop culture icon and are now available as numerous novelty items.

Matzo Novelties and Products

Jews are not known for their Judaica-related products. There’s usually a small selection of poorly designed religious parapernalia and tchotchkes, with the possible exception of the menorah and mezuzah. I have found some of the most hilarious Passover products and Mazto-inspired items that would make wonderful gifts for your Passover Seder Hostess. And break up some of the monotony of the ceremonial Haggadah reading as we all wait hungrily for our food.

I know we’re only 2 days from Passover, but remember, the holiday spans seven days (or eight days depending upon whether you are Reform, Conservative or Hasidic)

My favorite has got to be the Matzahball Kitchen Timer. A large matzoball atop a stack of matzohs. The timer will go from zero to 60 minutes. Just turn the matzah ball and you’re set to go. Stands at 3″ x 3″ x 3.5″

This post is dedicated to my father who nicknamed me Matzoball as a child and continues to call me that to this day.
