"Behind-the-scenes" haggadot viewing
The Museum has recently acquired 35 rare and unique haggadot to add to our collection, including hand-illustrated manuscripts from medieval times. The haggadah – the liturgical text used on the festival of Pesach (Passover) – is one of the most important religious and artistic artefacts of Jewish life.
We want to share the excitement with you, by offering four “behind-the-scenes” special viewings in the curatorial department to celebrate Pesach. Each tour will be 20 minutes long with up to 10 people at each session.
The haggadot were purchased with the assistance of the Copland Foundation and with support from private donors.
