CHAZERET — Chazeret is another
vegetable used in addition to karpas.

unclear, although in Hebrew, chazeret
means "return," an allusion perhaps to
the Jews returning to the Land of
Israel, or to freedom or away from

Many families do not include chaz-

MATZOT — Some seder plates are
made so that three matzot can be
inserted underneath. The three matzot
are used in the first part of the seder
— for Hamotzi, the blessing for bread,
and one will be broken and set aside
for afikomen.
Many are familiar with the interpre-
tation of the three matzot representing
the three ritual classes of the Jewish
people — Kohen, Levi, Yisrael.
The fact is, however, that three mat-
zot are used for a practical reason. On
holidays, as on Shabbat, we make
Hamotzi on two loaves. The ancient
rabbis, however, felt that two full loaves
were not appropriate for a holiday com-
memorating slavery. Thus, they man-
dated that we add a third, but broken,
matzah, symbolic of the meager rations
and uncertain food supply of a slave.
