Stunning vibrantly colored & elaborately artistic imagery along with Hebrew writing decoratively ornaments the beautifully illustrated surface of this marvelous gilded Jewish holidays platter. There are six (6) indentations in the plate representative of each of the six (6) traditional food items that are emblematically and symbolically integral parts of the traditional Passover service:
1 - Maror - bitter herb, symbolizing the bitterness and harshness of the slavery which the Hebrews endured in Egypt.
2 - Chazeret - bitter herb, symbolizing the bitterness and harshness of the slavery which the Hebrews endured in Egypt.
3 - Charoset - a sweet brown pebbly mixture (traditionally made from chopped nuts, grated apples, cinnamon & sweet red wine), representing the bricks and mortar used by the Jewish slaves to build the storehouses of Egypt.
4 - Karpas - a vegetable other than bitter herbs (usually parsley, celery or boiled potato), which is dipped into salt water at the beginning of the Seder
5 - Z’roa (also called Zeroah) - is special as it is the only element of meat (a roasted lamb or goat shankbone, chicken wing or chicken neck) on the Seder plate, and it symbolizes the korban Pesach (Pesach sacrifice).
6 - Beitzah - a hard-boiled egg, symbolizing the korban chagigah (festival sacrifice) that was offered in the temple in Jerusalem and roasted and eaten as part of the meal on Seder night.
The seventh symbolic item on the Seder table is a plate of three whole matzot, which are stacked and separated from each other by cloths or napkins.
