20 Description

Next to the passage describing the preparation of the Seder plate, including the harosset (a dough made of fruits, nuts and wine, symbolizing the mortar in Egypt), is a text illustration in the top of the left margin. Two youths are standing next to a table; one of them is peeling fruit and the other is crushing it with a pestle in a mortar. Inscribed above them:

מתקנין החרוסת שני אחים/ אגוזים אגסים תפוחים.""

"The two brothers prepare the harosset (from) nuts, pears and apples."

In the middle of the left margin is a table on which are prepared the dips (green leaves) and a golden bowl with three mazot. They are inscribed:

השלש מצות והטיבולין/ על השלחן מוטלין.""

"The three mazot and the dips are laid on the table."

In the lower margin, on the right, below the beginning of the text of the blessing over the wine (kiddush), is a servant filling a jug from a barrel. The inscription above, reads:

"מן החבית מוציא את היין/ ותמיד בקנקן אין."

"He takes wine from the barrel, and (yet) the pitcher is always empty."

To the left, below the table is the master of the house filling a golden cup, while pointing to the inscription that reads:

  "מוזגין כוס ראשון לברכה/ כאשר לפניך ערוכה."

"One fills the first cup for the benediction, as it is represented before you."
