What is the Afikomen?

Afikomen means “that which comes after” because, although it is prepared early on in the SederWhat is the Afikomen? 2, it is an element partaken of later on.

The Afikomen is a beautiful element of the Seder and offers such rich teaching, so, although it is a part of the Seder, on the whole, I thought it deserved its own post!

So we know the meaning of the word, but what is it exactly?

It is the piece of matzah that is eaten at the end of the Seder.

On the Seder table, there will be three pieces of matzah that are kept in a pouch with inner pockets known as a matzah toshWhat is the Afikomen? 4. The leader of the Seder will take out the middle piece of matzah and will break it. One half is put aside and the other half is the Afikomen.

It is broken, hidden away for a time and then returned!

It is then partaken of at the end of the Seder
