Q&A Why aren't we required to eat matzah every day during Pesach?

Q&A Seudah shlishit before Pesach: what's the source for omitting bread?

When Pesach starts on a Saturday night, I understand that we are forbidden to eat matzah on that Shabbat (because we don't want to diminish the experience at the seder), but that we also aren't all...
