(Adapted from Machar Congregation)

Maror held up for all to see.

Why do we eat maror?
Tradition says that this bitter herb is to remind us of the bitterness of our slavery.
We force ourselves to taste pain so that we may more readily value pleasure.

All take a taste of maror on a piece of matzah.

[ Scholars inform us that bitter herbs were eaten at spring festivals in ancient times.
The sharpness of the taste awakened the senses
and made the people feel at one with nature's revival.
