The holiday of Passover is celebrated around the family dining table, and the story is told recounting the Jews’ exodus from Egypt after 400 years of slavery.
Passover is the only Jewish holiday where it is prescribed what specific foods are eaten.
The seder plate is the most important ritual object of the Passover ceremony. On it are placed the symbolic foods: Betzah (hard boiled egg), Zeroah (roasted shankbone), Maror (bitter herbs), Karpas (parsley), Charoseth (apple nut mixture), and Chazereth (romaine lettuce and bitter herbs).
In recent years, a new Jewish ritual object has been introduced to the Passover seder. The Miriam’s Cup was created to honor Miriam, the sister of Moses and the only woman mentioned as a prophetess in the Old Testament.
