**“I have never allowed anyone to bake their own matza. It is not kosher.” said Rabbi Zev Schechter.** Wow. For centuries, that is exactly how many Jews got their own matzah- they made it themselves, and there was not a rabbi supervising in each home. I wonder what kind of rhetorical gymnastics Rabbi Schechter would go through to explain why past generations could make their own matzah, but we no longer can. Possibly by insulting the current generation as sinful or ignorant, or saying the past generation was closer to Sinai, more observant, etc. I'm not saying making one's own Kosher for Passover matzah would be easy; in fact it clearly would be a lot of work. And that is a good reason to not make K4P Matzah at home- because Passover is enough work as it is.
