Maror and Charoset Sandwich

[Raise the charoset and say:]

The charoset represents the bricks and mortar made in slavery.

Maror, Charoset, and Matzah sandwich:

To remind us of the Temple, we do as Hillel did in Temple times. He combined Matzah and maror in a sandwich and ate them together, to fulfill what is written in the Torah:

They shall eat it with unleavened bread and bitter herbs."

Question: Why would something sweet be used to represent mortar during slavery?
Answer: Without the oppression the people wouldn't have walked out of Egypt.

[Invite conversation about hitting rock bottom as the catalyst for moving upward.]

[At this point, dip a piece of matzah in both the bitter herbs (horseradish) and the sweet charoset, and eat.]
