The Pesach seder is a time for questions. This year we had a new one.
Jordan, his grandma Helen, and Matthew at the Pesach table. Photo credit: Merry. And that’s my mom’s seder plate.
The traditional plate would have a shankbone, symbolic of the lamb sacrificed for the ancient observance, and of the blood placed on the Hebrews’ doorposts so that the Malakh haMavet would know which houses to pass over, as we awaited our exodus.
But what is a non-meat-eater to do? Many have suggested a beet. However, this being Ladera Frutal, we had other ideas. So this year’s seder plate had a representative of the season’s new crop of blood oranges.
From our table to yours, happy feast(s) of spring and freedom!
