Food fun facts! or Fun food facts!


Two main dishes are often eaten at the seder to symbolize the Pesach and Hagigah sacrifices (The Schocken Passover Haggadah. New York : Schocken Books, 1996.)

Some add a fish course, these 3 main courses symbolize Mosheh, Aharon and Miriyam as well as the 3 foods that are to be eaten in the days of Mashiah: the Leviatan, the Ziz (an enormous bird) and the Shor ha-Bor, the behemoth. The fish also symbolizes the fish that the Israelite women would bring the men during the time of slavery to increase their sexual potency. (Wolowelsky)

The wonton with Mosheh is completely pesadic- chametz free!
