Like the Sabbath, Passover is observed primarily in the home. Central to the celebration of Passover is the Seder. Seder means order, and involves the reliving, through recounting, of the Exodus from Egypt. After sweeping the last bit of chametz from the home, the Passover Seder begins, including an explanation for the symbols of the holiday laid out on the Seder plate. Texts provided guidance on the appearance and offerings of the Seder table, setting the Passover table, arranging the Seder plate, and the foods to be consumed by the gathered family and friends.
