Stylish seder plates for Passover

Passover is a Jewish holiday that celebrates Spring and the story of  Exodus, as told in the Torah or Old Testament. The holiday begins with the seder meal, a festive gathering with family and friends filled with wonderful traditions. Seder translates to 'order' in hebrew, which is the perfect name because there is a specific order in which you eat the symbolic foods from the seder plate and sing the corresponding blessings and songs.

Seder plates have designated spots for a green vegetable or herb, which symbolizes spring, charoset, a sweet apple and walnut mixture which symbolizes the mortar the Jews used to build the pyramids when they were slaves in Eqypt, a roast shank bone to symbolize the sacrifices made at the Second Temple, an egg to symbolize the circle of life, grated horseradish to symbolize the bitterness of slavery, and salt water to symbolize the salty tears of the forefathers when they were slaves in Egypt

Seder plates used to be pretty standard with spots for each food written in hebrew writing, but now there are designer seder plates that pump up the decor factor on your seder table.

Whether you're modern, traditional or transitional there is a seder plate for every style!
