Guide to Seder Plates
Just like matzah, wine and Haggadahs, Seder plates are an essential part of any Passover celebration. While most Seder plates will feature the word Pesach or include places for the six traditional foods that are displayed during the meal, no two plates are alike. Many Israeli artists use Seder plates as an opportunity to unleash their creative abilities, while others prefer to stick to more traditional motifs.
Choosing a Seder plate is an important decision. Seder plates are often used for years and years, and can even become family heirlooms. While Seder plates aren't usually used outside of Passover, whichever plate you select can also be displayed as a gorgeous piece of home décor and a year-round reminder of our rich traditions.
With more than 70 options to choose from, we offer Seder plates for every aesthetic and budget. Here are a few of our favorites that encompass the endless opportunities to add a personal touch to your Seder, making it meaningful for you and your loved ones.
