Misconception: Horseradish (chrain) is the preferred item to use to
fulfill the mitzvah of eating maror at the Seder.
Fact: Among Ashkenazim, horseradish is widely used for maror. While
horseradish often appears as the translation for tamcha, one of the
vegetables listed in the Mishnah that may be used for maror, the
translation is probably inaccurate.1 Although horseradish is now
considered acceptable for use at the Seder, according to many
posekim, lettuce and endives are preferable.
