115b1) REMOVING THE SEDER PLATE FROM THE TABLE
OPINIONS: The Gemara says that the custom was to remove the tables from before all of the people at the Seder (like the opinion of Rav Huna). The RASHBAM explains that nowadays, there is no custom to remove the table because we eat at one large table, whereas in the time of the Gemara they used to eat at small, individual tables. Rather, it suffices to move the Seder plate to the other end of the table. What is the practice today?Next daf(a) The SHULCHAN ARUCH (OC 473:4) rules like the Gemara's conclusion according to the Rashbam, that the Seder plate should be moved across the table before reciting Mah Nishtanah so that the children will be aroused to ask questions.
