The Sarajevo Haggadah
Presented by Les Bergen, trustee of the Capital Jewish Museum and collector of Haggadot
The Sarajevo Haggadah is one of the most famous Jewish books in the world. A religious and cultural icon, its history is replete with mystery and intrigue. Its survival is nothing short of remarkable—from the expulsion of Spanish Jews in the Inquisition, resurfacing in Italy in 1609 and later Sarajevo, courageously saved from a Nazi general and then hidden, and surviving 1990’s Serb bombardment. Learn how it has become a symbol of interreligious respect and cooperation. Watch the live stream here.
