The charoset reminds us of the mortar and of the pain of slavery. However, as we eat it
we taste it’s sweetness. This sweetness gives us hope that the future will bring
redemption and justice to all people.
We make sandwiches out of maror and charoset, to remind us of the mortar our
ancestors used to construct huge monuments for Pharaoh in Egypt.

As you we eat this sandwich, we consider the signs of hope for a more just future that
can be seen in your community.
