The Symbols Of Passover Dramatizing the flight of Jews from Egypt at the time of the Exodus, Rabbi Allan Kensky explains to children of Beth Israel Congregation the symbols of Passover. Mark Lampert (left) holds the wine which symbolizes freedom, while Susan Aminoff holds a bottle of horseradish, symbolizing bitter herbs and the bitterness the Jews experienced while slaves in Egypt. Hannah Bernard (right) carries a pack of matzoh, or unleavened bread, on her back as the Jews did when they left Egypt. Kensky says the egg symbolizes spring and the matzoh, the unleavened bread. Traditionally, Kensky says, children in Sefardic Jewish families (from Spanish or Oriental descent) act out the flight from Egypt on the first night of Passover.
