This month Shabbat Shelanu and Anshe Emet are honored to welcome Stephen Durschlag who will speak to us about the Jewish Experience and the Haggadah.
The Jewish holiday of Passover recalls and celebrates the freeing of the Israelites from slavery in Egypt. The Haggadah is the book that contains the ritual guide to the Passover Seder meal, along with scripture passages, commentary, prayers, and songs. For centuries the Haggadah has been one of the most celebrated items of Jewish literature and art. Stephen Durchslag holds what is considered to be the largest private collection of Haggadot in the world, numbering some 4,500 volumes, dating from 1485 to the present day. He will speak to us about his expansive collection, and answer your questions.
