To prepare for the Seders, if you can, gather the following items together.

1. Three pieces of Matzah on a plate, covered with a napkin

2. Wine or grape juice

3. A bowl of salt water

4. A Seder plate — The objects on the Seder plate include:

  1. A roasted egg
  2. Maror (Bitter Herbs): Horseradish and/or Romain lettuce
  3. Charoset (mixture of fruit and nuts): Common recipe — a mixture of chopped apple, chopped walnuts, honey, and wine. Represents the mortar the Israelites used in making bricks
  4. Karpas (Spring Vegetable): parsley, celery, boiled potato, or raw onion
  5. Zeroa (Shank bone): A bone representing the sacrifice we made on Passover when the Temple still stood. Some vegetarians use a beet

If you can’t get these items, don’t worry, Jeff and Simon, who will be leading the Seders, will have them, and will be using them ceremonially in the Seder. 

It is still possible to get a free Maxwell House Haggadah at Shoprite, but you can use whatever Haggadah you have at home, or you can download the Rabbinical Assembly’s Passover Haggadah: Feast of Freedom, by clicking here

We hope to see you at either one or both of the Seders. 

If you have any questions for Simon call him at 908-591-4037 or for Jeff call him at 973-207-3095.
