HAGGADAH PESSACH ( Easter)
According to the jewish calendar ,Haggadah Pessach in 2013 celebrates on March 25. Easter or pessach in Hebrew ,is a celebration of freedom in celebrating the liberation of Israel from Egyptian bondage. Was a dinner full rituals , I found it very interesting! One day before the whole house was examined ,the demand for food containing yeast. For one week ,Matzot(unleavened bread) and pancakes, puddings made from ingredients no-leavened ,replace the bread. The main table where did all the rituals was decorated with boiled eggs,apples and walnuts,in beautiful towels. Raises a glass for each ,for the ritual for “the four sips of wine”, symbol of joy! The ceremony is essentially to tell the story of the exodus (Bible)Using various symbols to illustrate and dramatize the stories.The boiled egg that are on the table , is a symbol of the existence of Israel optimistic affirmation of the sanctity of life. The eggs are dipped in saltwater to express solidarity with bitter fate of ancestry. The apples and walnuts represent the family ,the “mortar” used by the Hebrew slaves in the construction of cities for pharaohs. Very different from modern Christan Easter!!! After all the rituals performed ,all guests can sample the delights ,each one better than another. KOSHER BRIGADEIROS in different format and tastes! Small chocolate candy filled with BRIGADEIRO and chocolate cake stuffed with BRIGADEIROS. I really enjoyed this party and learn so much about another culture.
