Step 3: Set a Beautiful Table: When setting the Passover table, symbolic foods must be placed on a Seder plate. “To set the stage for our recital of the Exodus story, we talk about the ceremonial foods on the plate such as the matzah, the bread of affliction,” writes Bronfman. Also included is a lamb bone, which represents the blood of the lamb marked on the Israelites’ doors so the Angel of Death would “pass over” their homes. Other symbolic foods include bitter herbs and roasted eggs, associated with rebirth and spring.
