Pesach Hagada. Some remarks:
|We use three Hagada (Seder) plates, see Dutch text on page 2. The first
plate is used for the "Simoeriem", the three matzoth shemuroth.
The second plate is used for the carpas, the salt water or the vinegar, the lattice,
the maror and the charoset. The third plate is used for the boiled egg and
the roasted bone, which must have cezait meat on it. A serviette is used to
cover the matzoth when the cups are lifted, or a beracha is recited on the
|Older versions of the Hagada end on page 20 after the blessing on the 4th
cup. The songs were added later, but not introduced in all families.|

By Picard (1673-1773)
|Waving of the lulav:
|During the beracha, the etrog is kept in the left hand and the lulav
in the right hand. The hands are kept apart. Only after the
beracha the hands are joined, so lulava and terog meet.|
|After the beracha we wave the lulav to al six directions: three times
to the east, then turn with the whole body to the south and wave three
times, then turn with the whole body to the west and wave three times,
and finally turn to the north and wave three times. When back facing the
east, we wave three times up and three times down.|
|During Hallel we wave to all six directions:
|once at הודו לה'
|twice at אנא ה'
|twice at הודו לה'
כי טוב at the end of
ברוך הבא. |
|From the start of Musaph we hold the lulav and keep it till the end of
