This dove shaped seder plate centers around the egg, which is symbolic of the spring and rebirth. On the important holiday of Passover we commemorate freedom from slavery and pray that all people who are still enslaved will soon be freed. This seder plate has room for all of the traditional Passover seder foods, and if you want matzah or the non-traditional orange, all can be elegantly displayed on this symbolic piece of Judaica. The piece is made of a high quality pewter and may be wiped clean. It makes an amazing gift for a Seder, a Jewish wedding, or a housewarming. To care for it, wash it in warm water with mild dish soap. Do not microwave it or put it in the dishwasher. Although the finish is sealed in, you can protect it further by placing small pieces of waxed paper under the ceremonial foods.
