Seminary Gets
Rare Haggadah

A unique 600-year-old manu-
script Haggadah has been pre-
sented to The Jewish Theo-
logical Seminary of America by
anonymous donors who are re-
ported to have paid a sum in
excess of $10,000 for the vol-
ume. One of only 15 such manu-
scripts known to be extant, this
Haggadah is considered to be a
most important example of the
work of the medieval book illus-
trator in Spain. In addition to
many superb finished illustra-

a number of partially-completed
sketches at different stages of
progress from which much can
be learned of the working meth-
ods and techniques of the an-
cient craftsmen.
The manuscript also bears
witness to the degree to which
Spanish Jews in the Middle
Ages participated in the cul-
tural life of the general com-
The news of the acquision of
this rare Hebrew manuscript,
a Haggadah written in Cata-
lonia in Spain at the end of the
13th century, was contained in
an announcement released by
the Seminary Chancellor, Dr.
Louis Finkelstein, on the eve
of Passover. The Haggadah
(which in Hebrew means discus-
sion) is the book that tells the
story of the Exodus, the events
celebrated during this eight-day
