Setting Up Your Seder Plate


Here’s a rundown of the meaningful foods that go on the seder plate: There are two kinds of maror, or bitter herbs - spicy horseradish and a type of lettuce (usually romaine). These are reminiscent of the ugly, harsh conditions the Jewish people endured in slavery under the Egyptian Empire. Charoset is a sweet blend of apples, nuts, and wine, a paste-like substance designed to look like the mortar used to keep the bricks together in building the pyramids. Karpas, a vegetable dipped in salt water, mimics the tears shed by the Jews in Egypt as slaves. The beitzah (egg) and zero’ah (roasted shank bone) are symbols of two sacrifices in the Holy Temple (Beit Hamikdash): the holiday offering (korban chagigah) and the sin offering (korban chattas). These six foods are important to our seder experience. There is no seder without them. It’s time to decide which seder plate will display them just right for you.
