Rectification of Sin

Eating matzah which is made out of wheat is a rectification for the sin of Adam who ate from the Tree of Knowledge which was, according to the Talmud wheat (סנהדרין ע, א).

It is for this reason that matzah is called michla d’mheimnusa—the food of faith.  Because the sin of Adam was considered a denial of Hashem’s oneness, the rectification of the sin is through strengthening our faith.

(זרע קודש פסח כט,א)
