Pesach – The Egg

In Biblical times, it was custom to serve a hard-boiled egg in salt water as a first course. For Pesach, the egg symbolizes redemption and rebirth, as our ancestors were about to break the shell of slavery and enter the period of liberation. In most cultures, the egg symbolizes the spring and renewal.

The egg on the central Passover plate is shared by the females present. A prayer is offered that they may bear children to carry on our faith and the tradition of Passover.-contributed by Yvonne MacNeely
