No, it means the same thing. It's just a different transliteration/pronunciation of the same Hebrew word. The first is Sefardic pronunciation, and the second is Ashkenaz.
Similar to "Shabbat" vs. "Shabbos".

Matzah (מצה) is the Hebrew word for Jewish unleavened bread made with plain flour and water, and is associated with the Passover feast because it lacks the leaven that …should not be eaten or present in the house during that time.
Virtually any large supermarket will have it in the Kosher food section, usually close to Passover (from March).
Matzos are specially-prepared unleavened bread. Modern matzos (or "matzot" in Israeli Hebrew) are usually thin and cracker-like, somewhat like hardtack. See Exodus c…h.12 for the origin of Matzos. As commanded by the Torah, we eat matzos during Passover and avoid leavened foods at that time (such as bread, pasta, cereals, cakes, cookies). Matzot were originally made either hard or soft. The soft kind (which is also unleavened) is more similar to Persian lavash bread (a less tasty wheat tortilla). These matzot are still available in some places but are usually only eaten nowadays by Jews of recent Middle Eastern descent. Over the past few centuries only hard matzot were used by most Jewish communities, as Jews became more concerned about inadvertently allowing the dough to leaven as it rose and they increased the baking temperatures.
The Jews are believed to have made matzah when they left Egypt Hope it helps
A Matzo is a dry leavened bread, similar to crispbread.

Matzoh is literally flour and water. Once the water has been added to the flour it has to be baked within 18 minutes. In reality, buy matzoh, it's very very difficult to make …your own kosher for Passover matzoh.
Matzah is typically served when the gefilte fish is brought out. They are normally served and eaten together. Of course, this depends on how religious your family is. Some fam…ilies do it this way, others don't. It's all a matter of lifesytle. Hope that helps! xD _________ Outside of eating matzoh during the seder service, matzoh is eaten as a bread substitute, there's no specific time to eat it. Most people just keep a pile of matzoh on the table during their meals.
Matzo meal is made from flour, while corn meal comes from corn.
with peanut butter and jelly, butter and jelly, tuna fish, crushed up and eggs added and fried.
That depends on one's definition of healthy. Matzah is made from flour and water, that's it so it's neither healthy or unhealthy. Some attempts have been made to make matzah h…ealthier by using whole wheat and/or spelt instead of processed white wheat flour.
If - like me - you live in an area with few or no other Jews, kosher-for-Passover matzah can be quite difficult to find. Some supermarkets stock them if there's even a small l…ocal Jewish population, but if you have no shops specialising in kosher goods you may have to buy it through mail order. Google "kosher pesach matzah" and you should find a choice of companies that offer it for sale online - hopefully one of them will be able to mail a packet to wherever you live. This should be no problem at all if you live in the USA, EU, near large cities in South America or Australia but might prove trickier in the Middle East (except Israel, obviously) or parts of Asia, Africa and rural South America. Otherwise, you could make your own. In some areas, Jewish men form groups called chaburas who produce the special shmurah matzah ("guarded" - meaning production is closely supervised to ensure the flour has not been in contact with water for more than 18 minutes from start to finish, which would make it chametz - ie; prohibited during Passover - and therefore unsuitable for Passover use). However, it's a labour-intensive task and you'd need rabbinical supervision to be absolutely certain that your matzah were Passover kosher. Another way would be to make egg matzah, in which egg or fruit juice (not all egg matzah contain egg) in place of water, because although both eggs and fruit juice contain water they are not considered to make the matzah chametz. This would also be labour-intensive and you'd need to make sure you used only 100% fruit juice, not juice made from concentrate to which water has been added, as this will again make it chametz if the production process takes more than 18 minutes. To be absolutely certain your matzah are kosher, you would need rabbinical supervision once again, so it might be easiest if you just try to buy mail-order matzah online!
Matzah (also matzoh, matza, matsos) is "unleavened bread". The matzoh used at Passover is made only of flour and water -- no yeast -- according to a recipe which prevents the …dough from rising. It symbolizes the bread the ancient Hebrews took with them on their flight from Egypt, snatched from the ovens before it had time to rise.
When the Israelites escaped from Egypt, it happened so quickly that they didn't have time to let the dough for their bread rise. Instead, they baked the dough into flat cracke…rs. To remember this, matzah is eaten during the holiday of Passover.
They are named in the Torah (Exodus ch.12). "Matzo" comes from a Hebrew root meaning squeezing or pressure, because the matzos are not allowed to leaven and swell.
They are crispy crackers that are made from flour and water with no levening.
