What does the Salt Water symbolize?

Salt Water

The salt water is placed on the table as part of the Passover Seder.

Throughout the Seder, there are many different customs to follow, according to the Haggadah. When it is time to remember the hard times of the slaves, one way is to take a piece of Karpas or green vegetable and dip it into salt water.

This symbolizes the slaves sweat and tears while they were slaves of Pharaoh in Egypt.
