During the Seder dinner on the Jewish holiday of Passover (which was a couple weeks back), the bible story of the Jews fleeing slavery in Egypt is read. As the story progresses, foods are eaten that represent different parts of the story. This is a photo I took of the items that go on a Seder plate as part of a photo project I am doing on Jewish holiday meals.
The orange to the plate is a modern, more progressive addition. Rooted in feminism, the orange symbolizes the inclusion of the LGBT community and others who may be marginalized within the Jewish community.
