Gebrochts is a Yiddish term for matzah that has absorbed liquid. Some have the custom not to eat it on Pesach.

Gebrochts (Yiddish: געבראָכטס, lit. 'broken', also gebrokts) refers to matzo that has absorbed liquid. In contemporary Hebrew, "gebrochts" is known as "matza sh'ruyah," or "soaked matzo." Gebrochts is an aspect of Passover kashrut observed by many in the Orthodox Ashkenazi community.
