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.]
