Taken from The Night That Unites Passover Haggadah
Rabbi Aaron Goldscheider
Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach asks, ‘why do the children bring back the broken piece of matzah at the end of the Seder? The afikoman, the broken matzah represents the brokenness in the world. There are so many broken hearts…broken lives..so many tears. But do you know who will fix the world? Do you know who will bring wholeness to the world again? Our children. Our children will bring back the broken piece to make the world whole again.
