May 5, 2006, Newsletter Issue #5: Mortar or Charoset

Tip of the Week

Charoset (in Hebrew) is a mixture of apples, nuts, spices, and wine or grape juice. It symbolizes the mortar that the Jewish people used to build and keep the bricks together when they were slaves of Pharaoh in Egypt.

There are many different traditional ways of making Charoset from using dates and raisins to bananas and figs. The taste is sweet.

During the Passover Seder, the Charoset is eaten with Matzah, Karpas, and the Bitter Herbs.
