READ EX 12:17-20 3. The Israelites crossed the Red Sea on the 7th day of Unleavened Bread 4. was a required feast for all men to attend. Deut. 16:16. 5. Unleavened bread is without yeast. Yeast is a rising agent, and a little goes a long way. 2 pounds will leaven 500 pounds of bread! 6. They were to make the bread in a hurry and did not have time to let it rise with yeastSlide 6The six traditional items on the Seder Plate are as follows:
Maror and chazeret — Bitter herbs, symbolizing the bitterness and harshness of the slavery which the the Hebrews endured in Egypt. Either horseradish or romaine lettuce may be eaten in fulfillment of the mitzvah of eating bitter herbs during the Seder. Charoset — A sweet, brown mixture representing the mortar used by the Hebrew slaves to build the storehouses of Egypt. In Ashkenazi Jewish homes, charoset is traditionally made from chopped nuts, grated apples, cinnamon, and sweet red wine. Sephardi recipes call for dates and honey in addition to chopped nuts, cinnamon, and wine. Karpas — A vegetable other than bitter herbs, which is dipped into salt water at the beginning of the Seder. Parsley, celery or boiled potato is usually used. The dipping of a simple vegetable into salt water (which represents tears) mirrors the pain felt by the Hebrew slaves in Egypt. Usually in a Shabbat or holiday meal, the first thing to be eaten after the kiddush over wine is bread. At the Seder table, however, the first thing to be eaten after the kiddush is a vegetable. This leads immediately to the recital of the famous question, Ma Nishtana — "Why is this night different from all other nights?" It also symbolizes the spring time, because Jews celebrate Passover in the spring. Zroa — Also called Zeroah, it is special as it is the only element of meat on the Seder Plate. A roasted lamb or goat shankbone, chicken wing, or chicken neck; symbolizing the korban Pesach (Pesach sacrifice), which was a lamb that was offered in the Temple in Jerusalem, then roasted and eaten as part of the meal on Seder night. Since the destruction of the Temple, the zroa serves as a visual reminder of the Pesach sacrifice; it is not eaten or handled during the Seder. Vegetarians often substitute a beet, quoting Pesachim 114b as justification. 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. Although both the Pesach sacrifice and the chagigah were meat offerings, the chagigah is commemorated by an egg, a symbol of mourning (as eggs are the first thing served to mourners after a funeral), evoking the idea of mourning over the destruction of the Temple and our inability to offer any kind of sacrifices in honor of the Pesach holiday. Since the destruction of the Temple, the beitzah serves as a visual reminder of the chagigah; it is not used during the formal part of the seder, but some people eat it with saltwater as the first course of the meal.Matzah Bread The seventh symbolic item on the Seder table is a plate of three whole matzot, which arestacked and separated from each other by cloths or napkins. The middle matzah will be brokenand half of it put aside for the afikoman. The top and other half of the middle matzot will be usedfor the hamotzi (blessing over bread), and the bottom matzah will be used for the korech (Hillelsandwich).
A bowl of salt water, which is used for the first "dipping" of the Seder, is not traditionally part ofthe Seder Plate, but is placed on the table beside it. However, it sometimes is used as one of thesix items, omitting chazeret.When used, it is always placed in the center of the plate.
