Passover Gift Ideas | Boca Raton, FL
Passover is a major Jewish Holiday and one of the most widely celebrated Jewish holidays. It celebrates the emancipation of the Jewish people from slavery in Egypt. The name refers to the belief that God set 10 plagues upon Egypt, culminating in one that killed the firstborn child of every family. However, the plague "passed over" Israelite houses, leaving them untouched. When the Pharaoh found his own child dead, he chased the Israelites out of the country and freed them from slavery in the process.
It is traditional for Jewish families to gather on the first night of Passover for a special dinner called a seder. The main dish that is used on Passover is called a seder plate. The Passover Seder plate is a special plate containing symbolic foods eaten or displayed at the Passover Seder. Each of the six items arranged on the plate has special significance to the retelling of the story of Passover.
1. Zeroa (shankbone)
2. Beitza (roasted hard-boiled egg)
3. Maror / Chazeret (horseradish)
4. Maror / Chazeret (onion)
6. Karpas (parsley)

Matzah Cover and/or Matzah Plate
Every year at Passover, a highlight of the season is the traditional unleavened bread, or matzah, that is usually served at meals. Flat and crisp, it symbolizes the dough that Israelite women had to grab before it had time to rise, as they and their families escaped in the night from Egypt.
At the traditional Seder dinner that marks the start of Passover, matzah plays a special role and the two main things used with the matzah are matzah covers and matzah plates.
In order to keep the matzah fresh and protected, many families will have a special cover. You can’t use the regular Challah cover – that’s Chametz (foods with leavening agents that are forbidden on the Jewish holiday of Passover). Matzah covers provide a decorative touch and buying a beautiful new Matzah cover for your host is a great idea! Shop for matzah covers in Boca Raton at Devon's Diamonds & Decor.
Matzah plates are just as they sound, a plate that holds the matzah. Honor the matzah as one of the centerpieces of the Passover seder with a gorgeous new matzah plate for your host/hostess. Shop matzah plates in Boca Raton at Devon's Diamonds & Decor.
Michael Aram Cocktail Napkin Holder
Cocktail napkin holders are the perfect Seder table decoration for your host and can be used throughout the year. They are a stylish way to keep napkins neatly presented with all the food and wine being served. Shop for Michael Aram cocktail napkin holders in Boca Raton at Devon's Diamonds & Decor.
Once the wine has been blessed, the Kosher wine gets poured into the large Kiddush cup at the top and the wine cascades through the fountain and fills the smaller cups below. Each participant at the blessing gets a cup to sample the sanctified wine. Another great gift to be used year round, for Shabbat and other Jewish holidays. Shop for Kiddush fountains in Boca Raton at Devon's Diamonds & Decor.
