The bird-of-peace like outer shape of the seder plate centers around the place for the egg, which is symbolic of the spring and of course — rebirth. On the important holiday of Passover we commemorate freedom from slavery and pray that all people who are still enslaved will soon be reborn into freedom. This seder plate has room for all of the traditional Passover seder foods– not just the egg. The bitter herbs, shank bone, horseradish, charoset and –if you want matzah or the non-traditional orange, all are elegantly displayed on this symbolic heirloom piece of Judaica. The piece is made of a high quality pewter alloy and may be wiped clean. It makes an amazing Seder gift, or for Jewish wedding, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day or housewarming gift. 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.
