The Seder Plate
Passover is all about symbolism. From the customs to the food, hidden clues unveiling historic events can be found all throughout the meal. The central figure of Passover is the Seder plate, a dish with six obscure items to represent aspects of Jewish history and the Miracle of Passover. These symbols, set the series of events for the meal. The Zeroah, a roasted shank bone, represents an offering to the Temple. The Beitzah, a hard-boiled egg, reminds Jews of rebirth. The Maror, bitter herbs, are used to represent the bitterness of slavery. Karpas, a non-bitter vegetable, is dipped in salt water to remember the tears of enslavement. Finally, Charoset, a delicious combination of nuts, apples, and sweet wine, represents the brick and mortar made by the enslaved Jewish people. While these stand as symbols for the Passover holiday plate, some are quite delicious too!
Other Passover Menu Classics
In addition to the Seder plate, other Passover staples include gefilte fish, brisket, matzah in all forms, and of course, matzo ball soup. A traditional Passover Seder will start with the reading of the Haggadah. This reading includes spirited singing of classic Passover songs, blessing of four glasses of wine, the reenactment of the ten Plagues of Egypt, search for the afikomen, and of course, is concluded by a feast.
