It's beginning to look a lot like Passover. Sam in his Sunday best. Matzo and Manishevitz. Why is there an orange on the seder plate? Everyone else tried it. I did not.

The lighting's dim, but in the upper-left corner, is that an olive?
I believe the orange comes from a statement by an orthodox rabbi in the 1920s along the lines of "A women belongs in the rabbinate like an orange belongs on a seder plate."
