Seder Meal

Mar 29 2018 6:30 pm


The Passover Seder Meal contains a plate that is speacial because it contains symbolic foods eaten or displayed on at the Passover Seder.  Each of the six items on the plate has a special significance to the retelling of the story of passover of the exodus out of Egypt.  

The six significant foods are:

Maror - A bitter herb, symbolizing the bitterness and harshness of slavery.
Charoset - A sweet, brown mixture representing the morter used by Hebrew slaves
Karpas - A vegetable other than a bitter herb.
Zeroa - It is the only element on the plate that is meat, typically it is roasted lamb.
Beitzah - A roasted hard boiled egg, symbolizing the korban chagigah (festival sacrifice).

Every year, Trinity UCC participates in the symbolic seder meal, where friends and family gather in the dining hall to not only learn about what the seder meal represents, but fellowship as well.  This year the seder meal will take place on March 29 at 6:00 p.m. (the Seder Supper will be served at 6:30 p.m.), in the dining hall.  Please come and join us in sharing this symbolic passover meal.
