Passover is an eight-day long festivity in the spring that commemorates the Jews’ liberation from slavery when Moses led them out of ancient Egypt. The journey of freedom was no breeze for the Jewish people, taking ten plagues sent by G-d to finally make the Pharaoh let the Jews go. These plagues included swarms of locusts, disease, and armies of frogs. The Jews fled in a rush, resulting in no time to rise bread; therefore matzah (unleavened flatbread) is eaten during Passover as a way to remember the Jewish exodus. The holiday’s message is highlighted at a big meal, called the Seder. A Seder plate sits at the center of the table, displaying six different symbolic foods which relate to the story of Jewish freedom.
