Happy Passover

Fairfax, Virginia. March 27, 2021. The first night of Passover, we celebrated the Seder with our family, at our daughter Evelyn’s house. We tend to keep our Seders simple and not as long as some people’s rituals. Our highlights with photos by me and by Alice:

“This is the bread of affliction.” 

Traditional items on the Seder plate: horseradish, green leaves, salt water, egg, and Haroset (apples).
We added the traditional menu item: gefilte fish, that is always on our Passover menu.
The traditional lamb bone was served later as part of out dinner.

Another traditional Passover food: crescent-shaped jelly candy.

I'm so happy for you to have been with family. We have the same Haggadah and we also do a short Seder when we are together as a family.

I am so happy you were able to observe Passover with your family. I have only attended two seders and loved the being able to be a part of an ancient and beautiful celebration.

This is beautiful and probably all the more so as you were able to share it with those you love.

Happy belated Passover, Mae. I had gefilte fish once. I remember I quite enjoyed them.
