What The Food Means

Zeroah (A Roasted Bone): This reminds us of the Pesach offering we used to bring in the Holy Temple in Jerusalem. 

Beitzah (A Hard Boiled Egg): This reminds us of the festival offering which was brought to the Holy Temple on Pesach. 

Maror (Horseradish Root) מרורThese bitter herbs symbolize the harsh suffering and bitter times we endured when we were slaves in Egypt. 

Charoset (A mixture of apples, wine and nuts): Ground up together, Charset resembles bricks and mortar, reminding us how hard we were forced to work when we were slaves in Egypt. 

Karpas (Parsley): We dip parsley into salt water at the beginning of the Seder, representing the salty tears we cried when we were slaves. 

Chazeret (Romaine Lettuce): This is the second portion of bitter herbs which we eat during the Seder.  This is eaten in a Matzah sandwich together with Maror.
