  1. • THE PRATO HAGGADAH. [New York, Jewish Theological Seminary], 2006 (ca. 1300). Full leather, 14 x 21 cm, 160 pp + commentary. The Prato Haggadah (Spain, ca.1300) is an unfinished illuminated manuscript of 85 leaves, written on fine calf parchment. Folios 1–53 are written in a square Sephardic script and folios 54–68 are written in a square Italo-Ashkenazic script, using a different ink. The illumination of 30 pages is virtually complete. 58 are unfinished, with preparatory drawings and possibly some gesso and color, 50 have text only and the remaining pages are blank. Many of the pages have illuminated initial word panels, comparable to illuminated initials in Christian or secular manuscripts. Throughout, illustrations accompany the text, such as the depiction of the four sons, and illustrations of matza and maror (bitter herbs). Preparatory drawings depicting the story of Noah and the flood appear at the end of the manuscript. Margins are replete with fanciful drawings of hybrid creatures, imaginary birds, drolleries and climbing vines. The codex is especially fascinating because it demonstrates the making of a manuscript in the Middle Ages, enabling us to view its illumination after the text was written: the preparatory drawings, the laying down of gesso in order to cushion the gold leaf, the application of gold and silver leaf, and ultimately the application of pigments. The skill of the artist is of a very high order, both in the preparatory drawings and in the completed pages, whose brilliant colors look as fresh today as when they were applied. Printed and bound as an exact replica of the highest quality of the 13th Century illuminated manuscript in appropriate leather boards and parchment-like leaves. Limited edition of 250 copies. A treasure to behold. Leaf through the haggadah at http://www.jtslibrarytreasures.org/prato/prato.html. $4700.00.

Born in Kelme, Rabinowitz held rabbinical posts at Ivye, Aleksot, and Sopotskin and was esteemed as a writer of responsa and novellae, some of which were collected in his Sefer Orah Yashar (1903). An early member of the Kovevei Zion, Rabinowitz attended the Second Zionist Congress, where he made a deep impression on both Theodor Herzl and the delegates; he was elected to the Zionist General Council, later serving as one of the first directors of the Jewish Colonial Trust. … In 1906 Rabinowitz was appointed rabbi of Liverpool, where he did much to promote traditional observance and communal harmony, despite the early hostility of more Anglicized members of the local community. Together with Reines, he founded the Mizrachi world movement of religious Zionists in 1902, and he maintained his Zionist activity in England, being elected president of the British Mizrachi organization at its first conference in 1918.” (2007 Encyclopedia Judaica).

  9. • Guggenheim, Siegfried. OFFENBACHER HAGGADAH. Offenbach Am Main; Verlag Des Herausgebers Guggenheim, 1927. Clothbound. 4to. 97, [1] pages. 30 cm. First edition. Hebrew text with German translation. Original tan cloth spine, paper over boards, printed paper label. Edited by Siegfried Guggenheim, type set by the caligrapher Rudolf Koch, with 30 striking “Wiener Werkstaette” style hand-colored plates, including two maps of the Holy Land by Franz Kredel; printed in a limited edition of 300 copies (Number 124 of 300) as issued, this beautifully made volume is printed in red and black ink on fine paper, including dozens of musical notations; with color illustrations throughout depicting the plague set upon Egypt and the exodus. This Weimar era fine edition is based on the Offenbacher Haggadah of Isaac Offenbach (1779–1850) , a famous “Hazzan. Isaac ben Judah, surnamed Eberst, was born in Offenbach near Frankfurt. After he left his native town in 1799 to become a wandering Hazzan and musician, he began to be called, "der Offenbacher, " which soon became his official family name. In 1802 he settled in Deutz as a tavern musician, and in 1816 moved to Cologne, where he became a music teacher and in about 1826 the town Hazzan, a post he held until shortly before his death. The seventh of his nine children, Jacob, was the composer Jacques Offenbach. Isaac Offenbach was a versatile musician, a prolific composer (mainly of synagogal works) , and a writer and translator of merit. His historical importance stems from the fact that the documentation of his life and work has survived almost in full. His publications are a Haggadah with German translation and six appended melodies, some traditional and some composed by him (1838) ; a Hebrew-German youth prayer book (1839) ; and a number of guitar pieces. His manuscripts … include reminiscences by his daughter, and about 20 fascicles and folders of cantorial compositions and notations of traditional melodies. Over and above their value as "cantorial" antecedents of his famous son's work, these manuscripts provide both a treasure trove of the "great tradition" of Ashkenazi Hazzanut and an instructive picture of the development of a Hazzan at the beginning of the Emancipation. ” (2007 Encyclopedia Judaica). Since reprinted in a duplicate form, in 1960, this is one of the remaining extant copies of the first edition. Contains laid in single page review of the volume from a German journal “Der Morgen” of February 1928, written by Otto Kattler. Yudlov 3054; Yaari 2042. Subjects: Reform Judaism - Liturgy - Texts. Seder - Liturgy - Texts. Extremely well preserved, with light ageing on covers, and very light aging internally. Clean and fresh. Very good + condition. (HAG-7-18) (ID #29129) 700.00.

New York: Library Of The Jewish Theological Seminary; Valencia: In Collaboration With Patrimonio Ediciones, 2007. Hardcover, 107 pages, facsims. color illustrations, 23 cm. Facsimile text in Hebrew and Aramaic; modern texts in English. Contents: The Prato Haggadah: an investigation into the artists’ and scribes’ materials and techniques, and conservation treatment.

SUBJECT (S): Jewish illumination of books and manuscripts. Title Subject: Prato Haggadah -- Facsimiles. Haggadah (Ms. Prato Haggadah). Haggadah --Illustrations. Haggadah (Sephardic). This is the companion volume to the facsimile edition of the Prato Hagadah, a Sephardic Haggadah produced in Spain, ca. 1300, with incomplete illuminations. The manuscript lacks a colophon, but contains an Italian censor’s signature dated 1617. This companion volume (107 pages: color illustrations) contains an introduction and essays by David Kraemer... [et al. ] and is edited by Naomi M. Steinberger. Includes bibliographical referenes. OCLC lists 4 copies worldwide (JTS, Metropolitan Museum of Art, University of Pennsylvania, British Library). “Nothing at all is known of either the patron or scribe of the Prato Haggadah, and little is known of its whereabouts from the time it was produced in Spain, around 1300, until the time it was acquired by the JTS Library in l964. While the haggadah's text is written in accordance with the Spanish rite, at some point additional text, which included liturgical poems of the Ashkenazic rite, was added, most likely in Italy. A 1617 signature of an Italian church censor, Giovanni Domenico Carretto is proof that the manuscript actually was in Italy at the beginning of the seventeenth century. Nothing further is known of the haggadah's history until 1928, when it was in the possession of Dr. Ludwig Pollak, a native of Prague living in Rome. A distinguished humanist and collector of classical art, literary manuscripts, books and Judaica, Dr. Pollak promised the haggadah to his friend Rabbi David Prato, Chief Rabbi of Rome. After disagreements with the Fascist authorities in the late 1930s, Rabbi Prato moved to Palestine. Dr. Pollak, his wife and son, along with other members of the Jewish community of Rome, were deported to Auschwitz, where they perished. After the war, Rabbi Prato was recalled to his previous position in Rome and served the community until his death in 1951. Shortly after the Rabbi's demise, his only son Jeonathan, an Israeli diplomat en route to his post in Buenos Aires, was visited by the sister-in-law of Dr. Pollak in Rome. Knowing of Dr. Pollak's intention to donate the manuscript to the rabbi, she fulfilled the promise and gave the haggadah to the rabbi's only surviving heir. The Prato Haggadah was purchased by the JTS Library in 1964. The art of the Prato Haggadah is witty and imaginative. The manuscript is replete with decorated initial word panels, foliate ornamentation, and hybrid figures. Several illustrations relate directly to the text... The Prato Haggadah contains motifs common in medieval manuscripts, and many folios reflect the artist's sense of humor... For reasons that remain obscure, the manuscript's illumination was never completed. It is precisely the unfinished nature of the codex that allows the viewer to see the stages of production of an illuminated manuscript: the scribal arrangement of the text; the artist's preparatory drawings; the application of gesso to cushion gold or silver leaf; the addition of the leaf; the painting of a wide variety of pigments; and the outlining of the illuminations with ink. The text of the Prato Haggadah is also distinctive. Although it includes the standard biblical, talmudic, and midrashic texts, as well as the liturgical poetry common to other Spanish Haggadot, the Prato Haggadah lacks all elements associated with the Passover meal. Kiddush, blessings for matzah and maror, instructions for the feast itself, and grace after meals are absent. Scholars have suggested that Haggadot of this kind may have been written to be read publicly in the synagogue, after which people would return to their homes for the meal. This phenomenon is found in other Spanish Haggadot and is explained by medieval sources as satisfying the requirement to recount the story of the Exodus for people unable to lead or attend a seder. Many Sephardic Jews immigrated to Italy following the expulsions from the Iberian Peninsula at the end of the fifteenth century, often taking their manuscripts with them. Though we do not know when the Prato Haggadah left Spain, the manuscript includes an Ashkenazic liturgical section probably added in northern Italy in the sixteenth century and a censor's signature from Italy dated 1617. In addition, the volume contains many textual emendations and corrections inserted over several centuries. Though the Spanish or Ashkenazic sections of the manuscript cannot be definitively dated or localized, scribal practices and liturgical variants provide a general overview of the history of the manuscript and its owners” (JTS 2010).

In Judeo-Arabic and Hebrew. Mussolini-era Haggadah. Printed in Livorno, Italy, this Haggadah with Judeo-Arabic translation following the rites of Tunis includes 78 detailed illustrations from woodcuts printed in green ink. Livorno (Leghorn) was an old center of an established Sephardic community in Italy, seconding Venice in Italian Jewish printing houses, with a synagogue considered the finest in Italy. The Jews of Leghorn were known as Gorni (pl. Grana) , a “term used for the Jewish immigrants from Leghorn (Livorno) , who began to settle in North Africa, especially in Tunisia, from the 17th century on. The Grana were essentially merchants; their commercial activity was strictly connected with the Jews of Livorno. They were 400 or 500 in 1821, their number rose to 2, 500 or 3, 000 in 1893 and to about 5, 000 in 1938. Until the 1940s the Gorni constituted separate congregations in Tunis and in other towns of Tunisia, with their own administration, bet din, and communal institutions. At all times, the Grana considered themselves as belonging to the European culture (besides Arabic, they spoke Spanish, Italian, and French) and felt separate from the ‘Tuansa, ’ i. E. the old Jewish residents of Tunisia. ” (2007 Encyclopedia Judaica) The printing house which issued this Haggadah in 1933 was started by Solomon Belforte (1806–1869) , “printer of Leghorn. Belforte belonged to an Italian Jewish family that settled in Leghorn (Livorno) at the end of the 17th century. He started to edit Hebrew prayer books in 1821 and established his own printing house in 1834. In 1843, the local government authorized the printing of Italian translations of Hebrew liturgical texts. The activity of Salomone Belforte & Co. Was continued by the family – with the forced hiatus of the period of Fascist antisemitic laws and the war – until 1961, when all the equipment of the printing house was sold to an Israeli company. For almost 100 years, Salomone Belforte & Co. Was one of the most prestigious publishers of Hebrew books, meeting the intellectual and religious needs of Italian, Sephardi, and also Ashkenazi communities. Beside this, the Belforte printing house published Italian literary works and school books. ” (2007 Encyclopedia Judaica) Yaari 2178; Yudlov 3451. Subjects: Liturgy and ritual. Hagadah.

Revised and edited by Oscar Lehmann, printed in 1938. Two haggadahs were printed in Germany in this year, our copy from Frankfurt and the other from Berlin, comprising two of the last haggadahs printed in Germany until after the Holocaust. This Haggadah, bound in beige boards with a cloth backstrip, contains a dozen large plates depicting illustrations from medieval german Haggadahs. Rabbi Marcus Lehmann (Meir; 1831–1890) , was a “German Orthodox rabbi, scholar, and writer. Lehmann was born in Verden, Germany, and studied with Israel Hildesheimer in Halberstadt, with S. L. Rapoport in Prague, and at Halle. In Prague he was friendly with the writer Solomon Kohn, who may have influenced Lehmann's future work as a writer. In 1853 an organ was introduced in the synagogue of Mainz and in 1854, when the Orthodox members formed a separate congregation, Lehmann was elected their rabbi and, eventually, one of the leaders and spokesmen of modern German Orthodoxy. In Mainz he founded a religious school which from 1859 was an elementary day school for boys and girls. Lehmann wrote polemically against Reform and founded the weekly Israelit (1860–1938) to counter the influence of Ludwig Philippson's Reform periodical, Allgemeine Zeitung des Judentums; the Israelit became the principal voice of German Orthodoxy. Lehmann was the main contributor to the Israelit and his many historical novels, including Rabbi Joselmann von Rosheim (translated into English as Tales of Yore, 1947) , and short stories were first published in it. His stories were collected in Aus Vergangenheit und Gegenwart (6 vols. 1872–88) , and many were translated or adapted into Hebrew, Judeo-Arabic, French, Hungarian, English, and other languages. … Of more scholarly importance, though also primarily intended for popular instruction, are his German edition of the Haggadah (1906, 1914, 1926) , anonymously revised and enlarged by H. Ehrmann and translated into English (1969) , and his Sabbath lectures on Avot, collected as Die Sprueche der Vaeter (in installments, in: Israelit, 1895–1905; 3 vols. 1921/23) in which Lehmann made use of earlier commentators, particularly of Samuel b. Isaac 's Midrash Shemu'el, and thus made the commentators accessible to the German reader. Lehmann also published the tractate Berakhot of the Jerusalem Talmud with the commentary of Solomon Sirillo and his own notes, Meir Nativ (1874). Lehmann translated the Pentateuch (1873, 19136) in the Bible translation initiated by the Orthodox Bible Institute to counter the translation of Zunz and others. ” (2007 Encyclopedia Judaica) Note that this edition and year was not listed in the EJ, aparantly because of its scarcity.

Text in Hebrew and English on opposite pages, commentary in English. Haggadah of the roshei yeshivah, adapted by Yaakov Blinder, from the Hebrew by Asher Bergman, in association with Shalom Meir wallach. Description from the publisher: “Their very names inspire awe: Rabbi Isser Zalman Meltzer of Slutzk and Jerusalem; Rabbi Aharon Kotler of Kletzk and Lakewood; Rabbi Chaim Shmulevitz of Mir and Jerusalem; Rabbi Yaakov Yisrael Kanievsky, the Steipler Gaon of Bnai Brak; Rabbi Yaakov Kamenetsky of Torah Vodaath; and Rabbi Moshe Feinstein of Mesivtha Tifereth Jerusalem! Another year, another Haggadah. One often wonders what is left to say -- but no one will ask that question about this monumental anthology. For the first time in English, this volume brings together the ideas and expositions of six of the greatest luminaries of contemporary times, six revered and renowned roshei yeshivah, who, collectively, were the teachers and leaders of tens, even hundreds of thousands of Jews, all over the world. First in ‘Arzei HaLevanon, ’ the Hebrew predecessor of this volume, and now here, their discourses on the Haggadah are collected and set forth with taste and clarity. All of them were Torah geniuses, who saw lessons for today in the miracles of yesterday. To them, the Haggadah and the story of the Exodus were guideposts for life in every era. Their interpretations of the Haggadah are distinguished for depth, incisiveness, pure faith -- and the profound depth that marked their authors as the Torah leaders of three generations. ” With dustjacket.

Leonard Baskin (1922–2000) , “U. S. Sculptor, printmaker, watercolorist, and illustrator. Born in New Brunswick, New Jersey, Baskin was the son of a leading Orthodox rabbi. His earliest education was at a yeshivah in Brooklyn, where his family had moved when he was seven. After developing an interest in sculpture at age 14, he would attend day classes at the yeshivah and take evening art classes at the Educational Alliance (1937–39). Baskin also attended New York University (1939–41) and Yale University (1941–43). While at Yale, Baskin discovered William Blake. Impressed by Blake's role as a poet-artist-bookmaker, Baskin founded the Gehenna Press in 1942 and learned printmaking. The Press has published over 100 books, including Homer's Iliad (1962) and Dante's Divine Comedy (1969). … Many of Baskin's drawings and prints concern Jewish subjects. In 1974 he illustrated A Passover Haggadah, for which he provided watercolors, as well as hand lettering of much of the Hebrew text. Baskin received many important commissions, including a bas relief for the Franklin D. Roosevelt Memorial in Washington, D. C. and a seven-foot-tall bronze figure for a Holocaust Memorial in Ann Arbor, Michigan. ” (2007 Encyclopedia Judaica) Designed by renowned artist Leonard Baskin, this Passover Haggadah is becoming more scarce in hardcover. It has become a central part of the Passover tradition for many Jewish families. The vibrant paintings, the arrangement of the Seder text for group or responsive readings, the inclusion of the simple musical score for each Passover song, and instructions for special blessings and rituals make this book a perfect introduction to the Passover Seder for children and a family treasure for young and old.

Bound in green cloth, with forty black and white illustrations throughout and a final 8 pages of plates; most illustrations done by celebrated 19th century engraver and illustrator Gustave Dore. The author of this Haggadah, Chaim Aron Kaplan (1880–1942) , was an educator and diarist of the Holocaust. Chaim Aron Kaplan was born in Horodyszcze in 1880, then part of the Russian Empire, and today the town of Gorodishche in Belarus. He attended cheder (Hebrew classes) as a boy and received a traditional education, going on to study at the famous Yeshivas of Mir, Minsk and Lida, before continuing his studies at the government pedagogical institute for teachers in Vilna. In 1900, Kaplan became involved in the secular Jewish school movement and moved to Warsaw, where, in 1905, he founded a secular Hebrew elementary school which he ran for the next thirty-four years. He visited the United States in 1921 and produced a number of books, including a Hebrew Grammar in 1926, followed by a Passover Haggadah for children.

I had never heard of Arthur Waskow and his Freedom Seder. I thought I was alone on the planet. I was often making leaflets and flyers and brochures at our Wobbly print shop, the IWW collective where I’d learned every phase of production short of running the huge presses. So I researched and clipped and cut and pasted and type set; I stripped the negatives and made the plates for a two-color Hagadah – a thousand copies, stitched by hand – which I called the “Radical Haggadah. ” On the cover was an illustration of a medieval woodcut with Pharaoh’s chariots drowned in the Reed Sea, but in my version, drowning in the rushing waters were Nixon and Exxon and the whole military industrial complex! ” (Interview: Marcia's Life Story) Subjects: Judaism - Liturgy - Texts.

Black cloth hardcover with gilt lettering on front. A facsimile edition of the "Sha`ar Issaschar", a Hassidic Haggadah by Chaim Elazar Spira of Munkacz, published posthumously in 1938. The book includes an introduction by his son-in-law, Baruch Yehoshua Yerachmiel Rabinowicz. The end of the book features 7 pages of correspondence by Spira. Finally, the book features a single page in which the publisher, Rabbi Erno Friedman, attempts to rebuke claims that Rabinowicz struck a deal with the Zionists in order to escape Europe during the Holocaust. “Elazar Shapira was born in Strzyzów, Galicia in 1871 and served as Head of the Beit Din in Munkács. With the passing of his father, Rabbi Tzvi Hirsch Shapira, in 1913, Chaim Elazar Shapira became the Admor (Grand Rabbi) of Munkács. Rabbi Chaim Elazar Shapira was the Admor of a well-known sect of Hasidim, renowned for his Torah genius. His followers and enemies alike spoke very highly of him, and his influence spread far beyond Munkács, to Subcarpathian Rus' and Hungary. … In 1922, the town established its great yeshiva, "Darchei Teshuva, " that drew large numbers of students from across Hungary and Czechoslovakia and soon became one of the largest yeshivot in Hungary. He became head of the yeshiva, giving his lessons within its walls. During his tenure, some 200 students learned at the yeshiva, which won recognition from the Czech authorities as an official institution for instructing rabbis. In 1930, Rabbi Chaim Elazar Shapira visited Eretz Israel. One of his disciples, Rabbi Moshe Goldstein, accompanied him, writing about his rebbe's visit in his book ‘Masa'ot Yerushalayim’ (Jerusalem Travels). … Rabbi Chaim Elazar Shapira was known for his fierce objection to Zionism, in all of its manifestations, as well as immigration to Eretz Israel. … In 1937, Rabbi Chaim Elazar Shapira passed away, and thousands accompanied him on his final journey. He was buried in the Jewish cemetery in Munkács, in the tomb of the Munkács Admorim, where his father, Rabbi Tzvi Hirsch Shapira, and his grandfather, Rabbi Shlomo Shapira, were also buried. In the 1970s, the Munkács Jewish cemetery, including the graves of the Admorim, was moved to a new cemetery in the adjoining town of Kerepec. …Rabbi Chaim Elazar Shapira wrote numerous books, including ‘Sefer Ot Chayim’, ‘Sefer Divrei Kodesh’, a series of books (9 volumes) called Divrei Torah’, ‘Sefer Darchei Teshuva’, ‘Sefer Hagahot Hayerushalmi’, ‘Sefer Chamisha Ma'amarot’ (five parts) and ‘Sefer Sha'ar Yissachar’.

Teitelbaum founded and ran Camp S’dei Chemed International summer camp in Israel. Rabbi Eli Teitelbaum, an ultra-Orthodox educator and innovator, wrote this Haggadah after years of discussions with his students: “One must realize that many of their questions can probably be found in the Meforshim, and a variety of answers can be found in all four different parts of Torah, be it p’shat, remez, drush and sod. However, I’ve tried my best to answer them in the simplest manner possible in order to show them that their questions can be answered even on the very basic level. ” (From the Preface).

He studied under Dr. Meldola, the dayyan, and the Rev. D. A. De Sola, ‘the learned Hazzan’ of the Sephardic community, and received his diplomas. He returned to Jamaica and became for a short time assistant to the Rev. Isaac Lopez, minister of the Kingston Sephardic congregation, but was soon called from that position to be the minister of the Montego Bay community. There he stayed until his wife's failing health compelled him, in 1851, to return to her milder native climate. Mendes was then elected minister and preacher in the Birmingham (Eng. ) congregation, and remained there until 1858, when he removed to London, became head of the Neveh Zedek for six years, and established Northwick College, a school for Jewish youth. He continued meanwhile his ministerial duties and literary labors, and on the death of Haham Artom acted as preacher and dayyan for the Sephardic community of London. He was called to the ministry in the Newport (Rhode Island) congregation by the guardian congregation Shearith Israel of New York in 1883, and continued its minister until his death ten years later.

From 1868 Wogue was also director of the talmud torah of the Séminaire Israélite. The most important of his many scholarly works is a translation of the Pentateuch with commentaries (1860–69) , which is the one used in the Bible du Rabbinat edited by Z. Kahn. Among his other publications are Le Rabbinat Français au XIXe siècle (1843) , Le Guide du Croyant Israélite (1857, 18982) , Histoire de la Bible et de l'Exégèse biblique jusqu'à nos jours (1881) , a French translation (1882) of the first two volumes of Geschichte der Juden by H. Graetz, Esquisse d'une théologie juive (1887) , and La Prédication Israélite en France (1890). He also translated various Hebrew works. Among the manuscripts he left is a tract on theology.

Original purple cloth with silver gilt lettering on cover. First trade edition of the beautifully illustrated Steinhardt Haggadah, with 20 striking woodcuts by Jacob Steinhardt and calligraphic text by Franziska Baruch. “This is one of the most truly distinguished Haggadahs published in modern times, a milestone in Hebrew book production” (Yerushalmi 134). Steinhardt’s dramatic woodcuts show the strong influence of German Expressionism on his work. His experience in the German Army during World War I also had an impact on his work, perhaps most notably in the woodcut of the Four Sons, wherein the Wicked Son is portrayed as a soldier dressed in a Prussian uniform with a spiked helmet. “Steinhardt also chose to illustrate the Haggadah passage concerning the perennial attempt to annihilate the Jews… Steinhardt has focused upon a group of Jews, their faces showing that they are overcome with fear, in flight from some horror they have witnessed” (Yerushalmi 135). Steinhardt closes the Haggadah with a series of ten woodcuts to illustrate the popular Passover song, Had gadya.

Passover Haggadah illustrated by Joseph Budko, with 39 woodcut historiated initials and lithograph etchings. Joseph Budko (1888–1940) , was a “painter and graphic artist. Budko, who was born in Plonsk, received a traditional Jewish education. In 1902 he went to study at the art school in Vilna. In 1910 Budko moved to Berlin where he learned metal-chasing and also studied at the Museum of Arts and Crafts. In Berlin Budko met Hermann Struck who taught him the technique of etching. Eventually he also took up woodcutting, lithography, and painting. In 1933 Budko settled in Palestine. In 1935 he became the director of the reopened New Bezalel school of arts and crafts. Budko stressed the teaching of graphic design and utilized the ornamental value of the Hebrew letters. Budko's subject matter was determined by the Jewish environment in which he grew up and to which he returned in Jerusalem. Budko developed a style that combined the personal with the Jewish, being a synthesis of Jewish tradition and modern art. He also revived the spirit of Jewish book illustration, adapting it to modern design. Among the books he illustrated are the Haggadah, and he designed many bookplates. ” (2007 Encyclopedia Judaica). “Joseph Budko’s Haggadah, 1921, skillfully integrated the Hebrew text with illustrations. Budko was thought to be withdrawn and outwardly cold, but his art was warm in a style that permitted a melding of tradition with modernism, slavery with redemption. His [illustration of a] faceless Jew trudges alone through history from a callous past to an unknowable future, moving over a snow-lined path, half-frozen, but determined and defiant. No signs or wonders for him - he knows he must make it on his own. ” (Page 353 of “The way Jews lived: five hundred years of printed words and images” by Constance Harris). Yaari 1913; Yudlov 2821.

Leipzig; H. Haessel, 1908. Paper wrappers. Folio. XI, 190 pages. 34 cm. Second edition. In German, with Hebrew, Greek, Arabic. Title translates as: “The last Passover meal of Christ and the day of his death, according to the report of the Synoptics put into accordance with the Gospel of John. ” Anastatic reprint of the edition of 1892, with three supplements, containing additions and improvements of the author. D. A. Chwolson (Daniel Avraamovich Khvolson, 1819–1911) was a Russian Orientalist. “Chwolson was born of poor, devout Jewish parents in Vilna. In 1841 he went to Breslau, where Abraham *Geiger befriended him and helped him prepare for matriculation at the university. Later he returned to Russia, settling in St. Petersburg. In 1855 Chwolson became a convert of the Russian Orthodox Church. He was then appointed professor of Hebrew, Syriac, and Chaldaic philology at the University of St. Petersburg, and three years later he was given the corresponding chair at both the Russian Orthodox and Roman Catholic theological academies in the same city. In this triple capacity he taught practically every eminent Semitic scholar in Russia during the second half of the 19th century and after. Among his disciples were the greatest Russian Orientalists. Despite his conversion, Chwolson remained well disposed toward Jews and Judaism and retained his friendship with many eminent Jewish scholars and leaders. He was particularly welcome in Jewish Orthodox circles because of his frequent intervention on their behalf when government officials threatened the yeshivot or the publication of the Talmud. “Das letzte Passahmahl Christi und der Tag seines Todes” (1892) , while meant as an answer to antisemitic accusations, is a learned and detailed investigation of the circumstances of Jesus' trial and condemnation. In it Chwolson attempted to prove that Jesus was sentenced to death by the Sadducean high court and that therefore the Pharisees and masses of Jews bear no guilt. ” (2007 Encyclopedia Judaica). “The deep-rooted belief that Jesus was crucified by the Jews being the principal cause of the prejudice against them on the part of the Christians, Chwolson, in a dissertation entitled "Poslyedniyaya Paskhalnaya Vecherya Isusa Christa I Den yevo Smerti, " in "Christianskoe Chtenie, " St. Petersburg, 1875 (German translation, "Das Letzte Passamal Christi, " ib. 1892) , shows the groundlessness of this belief. He points out that the proceedings of the trial and condemnation of Jesus, as related in the Gospels, were in violation of the rabbinical laws, and consequently could not have been conducted by a Jewish tribunal. ” (1906 Jewish Encyclopedia).

The Sefer Simhat Ha-Regel contains the Kabbalistic commentary on the Haggadah by Hayyim Joseph David Azulai “(known by his Hebrew acronym Hida, Hayyim Yoseph David Azulai; 1724–1806) , halakhist, kabbalist, emissary, and bibliographer. Azulai was born in Jerusalem; he was descended on his father's side from a prominent family of rabbis and kabbalists from Spain while his mother was a daughter of Joseph Bialer who had gone to Erez Israel with Judah Hasid in 1770. He studied under some of the outstanding Jewish scholars of his age including Jonah Navon , Isaac ha-Kohen Rapoport , and Hayyim ibn Attar. Azulai attained early eminence in Jewish studies and was regarded by the Jewry of the Ottoman Empire and of Italy as the leading scholar of his generation. He was highly esteemed, too, by the Jews of Germany, especially after the publication of his works. … Possessed of great intellectual powers and many-faceted talents, he combined a religious and mystical ardor with an insatiable intellectual curiosity. Added to these were critical ability, a facile pen, and a boundless capacity for work. ” (2007 Encyclopedia Judaica) Yudlov 2433; Yaari 1766. Subjects: Haggadah - Commentaries - Early works to 1800.

Passover Haggadah with “Gei Hizzayon, ” edited with commentary by Aryeh Leib Frumkin (1845–1916) , “rabbinical scholar and writer; pioneer of Jewish settlement in Erez Israel. Frumkin studied rabbinics in his native Kelme, Lithuania, and at the Slobodka Yeshivah. He visited Erez Israel in 1867, and after two years in Odessa, returned to Jerusalem in 1871.” (2007 Encyclopedia Judaica) The “Gei Hizzayon” - written by Abraham Jagel (16th century) - is “a narrative and ethical work written in 1587, the first part of which was printed in Alexandria in 1880. Copies of Gei Hizzayon, either in manuscript or in printed form, are very rare; the complete work exists in manuscript form in the British Museum. The form and structure of Gei Hizzayon was influenced by the tradition started by Dante and followed by a number of Italian Hebrew writers. The author describes a visit to the heavenly regions guided by the spirit of his dead father. The main theme of the work is ethical: Jagel uses various literary forms to try to guide his reader toward the right moral way of life. His philosophy, deeply influenced by Renaissance concepts including a belief in astrology and predestination, at the same time posits the premise that man's actions can be motivated by ethical and religious choice, and are not only determined by fate. ” (2007 Encyclopedia Judaica).

Plates printed on separate paper and mounted on leaves. With decorative endpages and text printed in red and black ink. From the title page: “17 illustrations in colour by A. Allweil, an essay by Max Brod and an accompanying text by I. M. Lask. With a revised English translation and copious explanatory notes by Joseph Loewy and Joseph Guens. ” This deluxe edition of the Haggadah with illustrations by Allweil was printed in limited numbers in five runs throughout the early 1950’s until the early 1970’s, this being one of the earliest editions, though no date is given in the book itself. Galician-born Ariel Allweil immigrated to Palestine in 1920, and became the first leader of the socially radical kibbutz Bitanya. The commune was known for its intensely socialist lifestyle, with all members working together daily and meeting nightly to share their thoughts and struggles regarding the new world they were trying to forge. It was during his time with Bitanya that Allweil fully began to explore his creativity and decided to become an artist. His superb woodcuts celebrate Jewish history and community at a time when the Zionist dream had not yet been fulfilled. He designed two other Haggadahs, one for the Kibbutz he lived on in the 1930’s, and an edition for the Israeli Defence Forces in the early 1950’s. He later taught painting and graphic arts in Israel. This Haggadah is beautifully illustrated with commentaries which immediately situate the importance and practice of Passover during the time of the creation of Israel amidst wars in the late 1940’s, and the illustrations similarly depict both Israeli soldiers and biblical themes.

The compositional conception of this edition differs from its precursors in the monumental layout of the page. The decorated frame consists of two columns crowned by a pediment, and a text illustration at the bottom of the page. Framing each lower illustration are the figures of Moses and Aaron on one page and David and Solomon on the other. Several pages feature two larger pictures with a picture at the top in place of the arch. Sadly, it is not known who the designer of the Venice Haggadah was but one thing is for sure, he was a great artist as well as a great scholar of biblical and rabbinic literature. The printer, Israel ben Daniel Zifroni, however, was a well known publisher during the last quarter of the 16th century having printed books in Basel, in Freiburg, and in Venice from 1588. The haggadah was printed for him in the printing house of Giovanni da Gara. It appeared simultaneously with translations in Judeo-Italian, Judeo-Spanish and Judeo-German, the languages of the Jewish communities living in Venice at the time. The renowned rabbi Leone da Modena, prepared the Judeo-Italian translation. His tomb can be found today in the old Jewish cemetary on the Lido. In terms of the range and depth of its wood-cut illustrations, the Venice Haggadah had no peer. It included newly conceived images of scenes that had been traditional in the medieval haggadot such as scenes from the lives of the Patriarchs, the plagues, and the crossing of the Red Sea, but it also included images of biblical and midrashic themes that had not been part of the Haggadah iconography of the past. In the illustrations that adhered to the accepted conventions, the artist of the Venice Haggadah added details that made the image unique. For example, the depiction of the Israelites crossing the Red Sea shows them carrying the remains of Joseph. No other image of that scene in previous depictions had included that detail which alludes to the biblical passage which tells us that Moses took Joseph’s bones along, thus fulfilling the vow the Israelites made to Joseph before he died (Gen. 50: 25, Ex. 13: 19). This added detail adds immediacy and depth to the illustration and also serves a pedagogic purpose. It emphasizes the theme of keeping the faith in the story of the redemption from Egypt. As God kept his vow to Abraham that He would redeem his descendents after 400 years (Gen. 15: 13) , so did Moses and the Israelites keep their vow to Joseph that they would not leave him behind when they were redeemed. Among the scenes that had not been depicted in previous haggadot are Abraham with his wife and concubines, Laban and his army catching up to Jacob and his camp, a husband and wife sleeping in separate beds so as not to conceive children whose fate would be to be drowned by Pharaoh’s men. An illustration that accompanies the Hallel service after the meal is a tableau of three battles fought by Joshua and the Israelites during the conquest of Canaan. This too is an illustration unique to the Venice Haggada. ” Subjects: Haggadot - Texts. Seder - Liturgy - Texts. Judaism - Liturgy - Texts. Passover - Prayer-books and devotions.

Clothbound. 12mo. [2], 118 pages. 18 cm. In Hebrew and Marathi. With two black and white plates; the first of which depicts a Bene Israel family at a Seder table. “Service for the first two nights of Passover, with a Marathi translation by Hyams Ezekiel Penkar”, following the rites of the Bene Israel. The first Bene Israel Haggadah was composed only in 1877. “The original tradition is that the Bene Israel are the descendants of the survivors (seven men and seven women) of a shipwreck off the Konkan coast at Navgaon, about 26 miles south of Bombay. Bene Israel tradition tells of a Jew, David Rahabi, who about the year 1000 C. E. (or, some say around 1400 C. E. ) discovered the Bene Israel in their villages, recognized their vestigial Jewish customs, and taught them about Judaism, preparing certain young men among them to be the religious preceptors of the Bene Israel. They were called Kajis and their position became hereditary. They were also recognized officially as judges in disputes within the Bene Israel community. Somewhere along the line the Bene Israel formed a special attachment to the Prophet Elijah. They invoke his blessings on all auspicious occasions. Another typically Bene Israel feature is their custom called Malida: i. E. the preparation of a ceremonial food offering (composed of special ingredients) accompanied by recitation of Jewish prayers, psalms, and other appropriate biblical quotations on the occasions of purification after childbirth; preparation for a wedding; when taking, and after completing, a vow; after a circumcision, and for all other auspicious occasions; whenever there is a crisis or need for divine help; for the expression of gratitude to God; and on Tu Bi-Shevat to celebrate the first fruits of their locale, and also to give respect to be Prophet Elijah at Kandala, the place where he is believed to have appeared to the Bene Israel. ” (Virtual Judaica Listing) Yudlov 3496; Yaari 2197.

Fascimile edition of the 1526 book. In Hebrew with accompanying introductory booklet in German. Title, imprint, and series statement from introductory pamphlet (14 pages, laid in). Edited by Benzion Katz and Heinrich Loewe. Reproduction of the Frankfurter Stadtbibliothek copy of the original edition, printed by Gershom ben Solomon, ha-Kohen, in Prague in 1526. “Playing a pivotal role in the development of the illustrated Haggadah was Gershom ben Solomon ha-Kohen's Haggadah, published in Prague in 1526. Typography of this Haggadah, which alternates small and large letters, and contains inverted letters at the end of many lines was a common feature of texts produced by scribes and preserved the look of manuscript Haggadahs. Kohen's Haggadah included sixty woodcut illustrations and played a critical role in establishing the iconographic genres among Haggadahs well into the twentieth century. One example is the four woodcuts on the pages describing the famed "four sons. " Not only are all the sons clothed in Renaissance fashion, but more importantly the "wicked son" is depicted as a traditional soldier of the period. While his uniform would change to fit current fashions, the wicked son appeared for many centuries in the form of a soldier, thus linking wickedness with war for the Jewish people in the early modern and modern periods. In addition, one can see several pages later a pictorial rendition of Pharaoh in a tub, a theme which is present in Haggadahs well into the twentieth century. Drawing on the rabbinic legend that Pharaoh bathed in a tub filled with the blood of Jewish children in order to cure himself of a disease, the Prague Haggadah offers a pictorial tradition which enabled all participants at the seder table to appreciate rabbinic interpretations and tradition. ” (Center for Judaic Studies Penn Libraries Exhibit) Printed in the series “Monumenta Hebraica et Judaica” as book one.
