Matzo ball soup

Story pending

As many religions have popular food dishes that represent their culture, matzo ball soup is a common favorite within the Jewish community. Matzo balls are made from a mixture of matzah meal, eggs, and water. They are usually severed in a traditional chicken soup and sometimes served with noodles. Matzo originated from the unleavened bread the Jews ate while fleeing Egypt. Matzo quickly evolved and the matzo ball was invented. My grandmother Susan, taught me about matzo ball soup and its origins. She makes the soup for Jewish holidays such as Passover. Matzo ball soup is more than a dish to me. It serves as a unifier that brings my family together on holidays. Matzo ball soup represents my culture as it symbolizes the hardships that the Jews faced in the Exodus.
