Nine out of 10 Jewish Israelis will eat matzah on Passover. Seventy-nine percent of Jewish Israelis will participate in a Passover seder, while 7 percent will not attend a seder, according to a poll of 500 Israelis conducted by the Institute for Community Research at Israel’s Bar-Ilan University. Twenty percent of those polled said they would eat unleavened bread on Passover, while 52 percent said they would not. The results indicated that many Israelis have a soft spot for tradition, the pollsters concluded.
