Platos de Seder

The Seder plate, also known as Seder bowl or Passover Seder plate, is at the center of every Jewish dining-room table during Passover. This is the traditional plate on which we place six types of foods that represent concepts that relate to Pesach and the Exodus. The Charoset, a sweet mixture of fruits, wine and honey, represents the mortar that the Hebrews used to build cities in Egypt; the maror, bitter herbs, and chazeret, horseradish, symbolize the hardships that the Hebrews underwent; the karpas, any vegetable other than bitter herbs, usually potato or celery, is dipped in salt water and stands for the many tears shed by the enslaved Hebrews; the hard-boiled egg represents the korban hagigah, the festival sacrifice, that was offered in the Temple; finally the z’roa, usually a chicken wing or roasted lamb, represents the korban haPesach, the Passover sacrifice. The z’roa is only symbolic and is not eaten.
