dip the matza in salt when saying Hamotzi at the seder? (other than we would have to change the Ma Nishtana)
The ramah says because we need paas nuki
plz continue..why do we need pas naki
OK, folks. Please explain Pas naki. Not everyone is familiar with this. Thanks.
if i am not mistaken its because we don’t want to change the mitzvah and want to keep without adding anything to it
Pas naki is bread that is made from nothing but flour and water. It is discussed in the sixth (I think) chapter of bavli Brachos.
So only at the sdarim one needs pas naki not to change the mitzva? How does this explain that we “change the mitzva” at all other times when we dip in salt?
Can someone please clarify?
At the Seder, where the Matzah plays somewhat of a dominant role, we don’t want to “dilute it” with anything else. For example, the Matzoh is simple bread, adding salt takes away from its simplicity.
No matter what angle you take with the matzah, you want it to be just that, and nothing else.
