Seder Snapshot

“Pesach” (pronounced “pay-sock”) is the Hebrew word for the Jewish holiday called “Passover” in English.

Because Hebrew is written with a different alphabet that the English alphabet, all the words you see with English letters are transliterations of the Hebrew.  That’s why you often see Hebrew words written with a variety of different spellings.  Haroset and Charoses refer to the same thing, they are just different ways to transliterate the word for the yummy chopped apple, walnut and wine dish.
