Matzo ball soup is a traditional Jewish dish. People use three main items to make matzo balls. The first is matzo meal. That meal is mixed with eggs and chicken fat. Then people cook the matzo balls in a chicken soup.

In the days leading up to Passover, Jewish people clean their homes. They gather any chametz products. Chametz are foods that have risen grains, such as bread, cookies, and crackers. These foods cannot be in homes during Passover. So, on the morning before Passover, some people burn them. Others donate or sell their chametz instead.
