With Passover fast approaching, our upcoming 3rd Friday Kabbalat Shabbat, Friday March 16th at the Havurah, will focus on the history of the Sarajevo Haggadah.
Pat Casey will present a slideshow, video and additional information on this beautiful historical connection to our long Jewish tradition of celebrating our freedom with a ritual seder.
The Sarajevo Haggadah is handwritten on bleached calfskin and illuminated in copper and gold. It opens with 34 pages of illustrations of key scenes in the Tanach from creation through the death of Moses. Its pages are stained with wine, evidence that it was used at many Passover Seders.“–Wikipedia
