The Seder leader then takes three matzot (with the broken one in the middle), lifts them up for all to see, and we all recite:
Barukh attah Adonai eloheinu melekh ha-olam,ha-motzi lechem min ha-aretz.
Blessed art Thou, LORD our God, King of the universe,who brings forth bread from the earth.
The Seder leader next breaks the bottom matzot into pieces and gives a piece to everyone at the table. He then recites:
Barukh attah Adonai eloheinu melekh ha-olam, asher kideshanubemitzvotav ve-tsivanu 'al achilat matzah.
Blessed are You, LORD our God, King of the universe, Who sanctified us with his commandments, and commanded us to eat matzah.
We now all eat the portion of matzah given to us.
Note: This is the first taste of matzah for the holiday of Chag HaMatzot, the "Feast of Unleaved Bread." Chag Sameach!
