A photograph of a key hanging in a door lock. The right half of the image is taken up by a brown wooden door which has a greenish tinge due to the light source coming from the left. The key is inside a metal modern turning door lock and is hanging at the center of the photograph. The key inside the lock is metal and straight with ridges on both sides of the key bit and the part that attaches the bit to the key-ring is bulky and made of black plastic. On the small metal loop key-ring are hanging to other keys pointing straight down, both are completely metal and have ridges only on one side of the bit, the front key is squarish at the top and the back key is circular at the top. At the top of the image is what might be a cylindrical door knob but it has been cut-off at the top. The left side of the image is blurry and seems to be a window directed outside to a garden or some other space with a large light source and many green vaguely leaf shaped objects.Open Doors
Photograph of a seder table. Image of a table with a white table that has an unclear intricate pattern woven into it that is barely visible. The ends of the table are cut off from the image so that only 4 table settings and a bit of a 5th are visible. Each setting has an orange plate, seemingly paper, with a purple border covered in large white leaf patterns and smaller green leaves in between. To the right of each plate is a simple metal knife and spoon on top of a white napkin folded into a rectangle. On the left of each plate is a simple metal fork. Above the left and right settings closest to the camera are a simple metal spoon with a blue plastic cup on the left and a small wine glass on the right. With the two table settings furthest from the viewer you can only see the fork and edge of the plate on the right table setting and you can't see the fork or the blue cup on the left one and only the base and stem of the wine glass. The table setting closest to the veiwer and at the center has a matzah cover over the plate with the knife and fork not visible and no wine glass, instead there is a simply and polished silver kiddish cup with wine filled tot he lip and a silver wine dish underneath the cup. The matzah cover is white and has gold filigree designs on the outer edges with little golden tassels hanging off, there are also red Hebrew words woven on the cover but it is unclear what they say. At the top of the image, partially cut-off, is a transparent and bumpy square tray with several squares of matzah nestled inside. In the middle of the image is a sedar plate. It is white, circular and fluted, giving a vaguely flower shape and is split into 6 equal segments with a circular cavity in the middle. In the middle, inside the cavity, is a white bowl with a royal blue inner rim that has white floral designs, there are also blue Hebrew letters at the bottom which difficult to discern. From top left and rotating clockwise to bottom left the different sections of the seder plate have the following items: a light brown chicken wing, pale brown charoset, a white egg, green lettuce leaves, a root of horseradish and a few slices of purple beets.YCT Creates Coronavirus-Focused Passover 2020 Supplement
