The Passover Seder Plate


The centerpiece of the Passover Seder table is the Seder plate, a special plate containing 5 foods that remind us of the struggle of the Israelites in their quest and journey to freedom.


These five food are....


Haroseth
Parsley (dipped in salt water)
Roasted egg
Shank Bone
Bitter herbs



Haroseth
A mixture of chopped walnuts, wine, cinnamon and apples that represents the mortar the Jewish slaves used to assemble the Pharaoh's bricks.


Parsley
Symbolizing Springtime, it is dipped in salt water to remind us of for the tears of the Jewish slaves.



Egg
Another symbol of Spring.


Shank Bone
Symbolic of the sacrificial lamb offering, the bone can come from whatever the family is eating, such as the leg bone of a roasted turkey.


Bitter Herb
Freshly grated horseradish reflects the bitter affliction of slavery.

the egg symbolises the hagiga - holiday offering in the Temple; and the shank bone itself is not eaten during the Seder.
