Summary by Channie Koplowitz Stein It is customary to set a beautiful table for the Pesach Seder, to adorn the table with silver vessels and any beautiful utensils and dishes one may have, gold, silver, crystal. What is unusual is that the Jews are not an ostentatious people. At no other holiday do we make a point of displaying our riches on our tables. But for the Seder we make a point of dressing the table and ourselves in our finest Shabbos attire. What is unique about the Pesach Seder that almost requires us to acknowledge it with this richness?
