“You shall observe the month of the springtime” (Deuteronomy 16:1)
From the days of the going out of Egypt, entire Jewish families- in each generation- have gathered together around the table for one night of the year: Seder night. At the center of the holiday table is the Seder plate - an elegant plate which hosts six traditional dishes whose significance is woven into the Seder’s story. The Livorno Seder Plate with Legs honors the Jews of Livorno, Italy, one of the most famous Sephardi communities in Europe in the 17th and 18th centuries, whose rich traditions are renowned. This elegant silver plate is framed with intricate engravings - a tribute to the large Spanish synagogue of Livorno, which was the second largest in Europe when it was destroyed in 1944. The plate itself is supported by silver legs which are carefully sculpted mimic the appearance of leaves. Hazorfim’s silver artists have created a plate that is full of inspiration and a wonderful tribute to the traditions of the Jewish people which are relived on this night.
