Matzah Cover

(Description beneath image)
Matzah Cover

"Flying Geese" matzah cover (1998). 100% cotton. Pieced patchwork, with machine quilting and hand-stitched lettering and details. Measurements: 21"x21."

This cover uses a red, orange and purple sunburst, set against a marine background that recalls the drowning of Pharaoh's armies in the Red Sea, as they pursued the escaping Israelites. The sunburst is bordered by tiny, patchwork "flying geese," that use the same vivid colors as the sunburst. These triangles in turn are bordered with purple fabric, on which I have stitched "Chag Ha-Matzot," or "Holiday of Matzot" across the top. In each corner there is a cup of wine and one of the four different expressions that describe how God saved the Jews in Egypt: "I brought them out," "I saved them," "I carried them," and "I saved them." (Exodus 6:6-7) The cover is divided into three compartments to hold the three separate pieces of matzah that represent the three groups of Jews, Cohanim, Levites, and Israelites, and each compartment is marked with a handstitched tab for "Cohen," "Levi," and "Israel."
