Why Chometz is Forbidden on Pesach but Becomes Permissible Afterwards.
Through being careful about avoiding Chametz (leavened bread) on Pesach for seven days and eating only Matzah, the knowledge of faith in Divine Providence becomes revealed. After this, we come to truthfully know that even nature itself which is represented by Chometz(1), is completely dictated by G-d, himself. This is because G-d created everything and rules the world according to His will. Therefore, after Pesach it becomes permissible to eat Chametz as well.
(1) Because leavened and unleavened bread contain the same ingredients, only that bread had time to rise, thus unleavened bread is without G-dly concealment)
