  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 9x13-inch pan.
  2. Soak broken matzah in water until soft, approximately 2 to 3 minutes, and drain and set aside.
  3. In a bowl, beat the eggs with the salt. Add the sugar to eggs.
  4. Add the margarine or butter, raisins, cinnamon and jam or pie filling to eggs, mixing well.
  5. Add the matzah to the egg mixture and combine well.
