Passover Seder plates and bowls are usually simple plain designs that allow the focus to remain entirely on the ceremonial food contained within. However, decoration need not be rendered invisible as this beautiful Passover Seder plate and bowl set shows. Made from wood and hand-painted with scenes from the holy city of Jerusalem, the plate and bowl set are ideal tableware additions for observant Jewish families come the beginning of the important Passover festival.

The decorative Seder plate is designed by Israeli artist Yair Emanuel who lives and works in Jerusalem. Brought up in a Jewish Orthodox family and later moving towards a more pluralistic approach to Judaism, Emanuel has a sound grasp on the importance of Jewish festivals and their significance. Unlike many other Jewish holidays which are marked primarily in the local synagogue, Passover Seder is a very family-orientated event and is celebrated around the dinner table.

The one large plate comes with six smaller bowls. These are for the six traditional items that form part of the Passover Seder ceremony marking the freedom from slavery of the Children of Israel from ancient Egypt. These six foodstuffs include: Maror and chazeret, Charoset, Karpas, Z’roa, and Beitzah. Sometimes salt water is used in place of chazeret. The beautiful hand-painted scenes of Jerusalem are highly recognisable to anyone who has an affinity with the ancient city. The plate and six bowls are covered with three layers of lacquer making them long-lasting and perfectly water-proof. The set will make an excellent gift for a new young family who can make use of it for many decades to come.
