8 July @ 3.00 pm - 3.30 pm
Four splendid Passover Haggadahs known to us were copied and illustrated by the scribe Abraham from Ihringen in the 18th century with the last dated Haggadah on permanent display at the Jewish Museum London. Join Dr Zvi Orgad to explore the evolution of Abraham’s work through an analysis of the illustrations and letters in this Haggadah.
A Haggadah (plural: Haggadot) is a book containing text and prayers and stipulates the order of the Passover Seder. The word Haggadah literally means ‘telling’ because it takes those at the Seder through the story of the Passover, indicating which parts of the story to tell and plus when to drink wine and eat certain symbolic foods on the Seder plate.
This event is free with museum entry.
