The Guttenberg Press: Parshat Vayera

Rabbi Shaye Guttenberg, Head of School

As Lot welcomes his guests into his house in the town of Sedom, he serves them Matzah.

וַיִּפְצַר־בָּ֣ם מְאֹ֔ד וַיָּסֻ֣רוּ אֵלָ֔יו וַיָּבֹ֖אוּ אֶל־בֵּית֑וֹ וַיַּ֤עַשׂ לָהֶם֙ מִשְׁתֶּ֔ה וּמַצּ֥וֹת אָפָ֖ה וַיֹּאכֵֽלוּ׃

But he urged them strongly, so they turned his way and entered his house. He prepared a feast for them and baked unleavened bread, and they ate.  

Rashi explains that the reason he serves them Matzah was that it was Pesach.  

Question to Ponder:
Are there any other similarities between the story of Lot in Sedom and the Pesach story?
