What's on Your Seder Plate? Contemporary, Environmental, Egyptian, and Feminist ideas

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The humble seder plate with its ceremonial foods. We will look at a variety of seder plate designs and the foods we display on them as a way to look at the Passover story through different lenses. We think we know what each object represents, but might be surprised by the fascinating history of the foods and the changes that have occurred. And we'll consider some new ideas of what might be put on a contemporary seder plate. Your seder will never be the same.
