Passover Seder

Seder Plate

This year Passover coincided with Spring Break, so the kids and I were in Florida for the first night of this Jewish holiday. My mom’s community holds a large seder in their clubhouse with over 130 attendees. My mom is on the committee that plans the event, now in its 7th year, and she is responsible for working with the chef to pick the dishes for the dinner. She shares her recipes with him and he figures out how expand them from serving 8 to serving 130.

Traditionally, the youngest child asks the four questions, which are answered throughout the ceremonial service before dinner, but since they were the only two kids in attendance, they divided the questions between them. Watch the short video to see what a great job they did.

10 Drops of Wine for Plagues
Part of the service involves putting a drop of wine on the plate for each of the plagues brought upon the Egyptians, and here are my 10 drops on the saucer.

Dinner Plate
The food was fabulous, and included turkey with cranberry sauce, brisket, potato kugel, tsimmis and broccoli.
