The Seder plate is the most important part of any Passover Seder. It’s rich with symbolism, meaning, and history. And it’s what the holiday ritual is centered around. (Fun fact: Many Seder plate designs configure the six items into the six points of the Jewish star.)
If you’re not sure how to set it up, though, it can be very stressful. What if you forget something? What if you put something in the wrong place?
Whether you’re hosting a Seder this year or just going to one, you should know what goes on a Seder plate and why. Of course, there have been some changes over the years, and some families add, change, or rearrange items. But we swear that it’s really not all that complicated. See for yourself.
