The Seder plate - or kearah in Hebrew, is the centerpiece of the Seder. It holds the six symbolic foods eaten and used throughout the night: Beitza, a hard-boiled egg whose shell has been singed to commemorate the destruction of the Temples; Zeroah, a roasted shank bone to remind us of the Pascal lamb offering; Maror and Hazeret, two types of bitter herb or vegetable eaten to enforce sympathy with the bitterness of the Jews' 400 year slavery; Karpas, a vegetable which is dipped in salt water to symbolize spring and regrowth; and Haroset, a thick, sweet paste made from wine, apples, dates and nuts which looks like the cement the Jews were forced to pour during their slavery.
