WHAT YOU NEED FOR THE SEDER

  • 1 bowl of clean water for hand-washing

  • 4 cups of wine or grape juice

  • Matzo

  • Salt water and vegetables for dipping (traditionally we use parsley)

  • Bitter herbs (traditionally horseradish though onion or lettuce will do)

  • Charoset

  • You may also choose to have a traditional seder plate on the table

The Holiday Meal:

Our 2nd Seder Meal traditionally includes matzo, a boiled egg, gefilte fish, matzo ball soup then an entrée of protein, roasted vegetables and potato kugel followed by dessert with nothing made from flour on the table. We are sure that the meals this year will be quite varied from table to table; we hope yours will be pleasant and that you will be able to safely and comfortably share it with someone.

THE TRADITIONAL SEDER PLATE

Items that people choose to have on the seder plate can vary – there are many online resources for creating your own plate.

The traditional plate includes:

  • Zeroa (shank bone)

  • Karpas (vegetable)

  • Charoset [link to charoset page]

CHAROSET

Charoset is a traditional part of the Passover seder.  It is the sweet mixture eaten with the bitter herbs and matzah. Representing the mortar and bricks used by the Jews when they toiled for pharaoh, the recipe varies but the base is typically apples, nuts and wine.  You can vary the recipe to your own taste and some choose to pulse in a food processor to give it a smoother consistency.  Try one of the recipes provided below and feel free to tweak it to your own taste. However you make it, be sure to make plenty!
