Yoel Kahn: Illuminated Medieval Passover Haggadahs (Virtual on Zoom)

April 6, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Virtual Program Virtual Program
Program Fee: Free

While synagogues and sacred books were rarely illustrated, Medieval Jews commissioned and created marvelously illustrated Haggadot (Haggadahs). The pictures in these 14th – 16th century books can tell us a lot about both how their illustrators and viewers imagined the Biblical story and the clothing, buildings, food, celebrations and humor of their own day. We will examine several of the most beautiful and interesting examples of the illustrated medieval Haggadah, comparing the variety of styles, images and artistry among them.
