Passover

Posted on

Today is the start of Passover (Hebrew: Pesach), an important yearly celebration for the Jewish people. Commemorating the liberation of the Jewish people from slavery in Egypt, Passover seders use food to narrate the story, so that the coming generations will understand their heritage.

The event starts with wine, a symbol of joy and happiness. When drinking wine and eating matzah (unleavened bread), the consumers traditionally recline to represent freedom. There follows a ritual hand-washing and dipping food in salt water. After that, the guests break matzah and use the larger half to hide as the ‘afikomen’ (they hide this for a child to find, and they win a prize).

A number of food courses follow, each explaining the plight of the Jewish people. A feast is served, beginning with a hard boiled egg dipped in salt water. Typical foods for the passover feast include; matzah ball soup, beef brisket, roasted vegetables, macaroons and flourless cake.

Passover is a prime example of how food can be used to link communities throughout the generations. Food is more than just fuel for our bodies – it’s the glue that holds our loved ones together.
