About this Item
- Hagadat Moriyah
- Moriah Haggadah
- The Passover, or Pesach, Haggadah is one of the most important and beloved texts in the Jewish tradition. At the beginning of Passover, Jews the world over gather around tables to read from the Haggadah, a book containing the traditional narrative of the Exodus from Egypt. "Haggadah" means recital or retelling. With its songs and tales and emphasis on the instruction of children, the ancient Passover story is the most commonly illustrated Jewish prayer book. The Moriah Haggadah was created by Israeli artist Avner Moriah, who drew his models from Egyptian and Assyrian wall paintings and figurines from the early Bronze and Iron ages, the period in which the original Passover story unfolds. Moriah used a palette of the blues, oranges, and golds that recall the Middle Eastern landscape. The text is in Hebrew, with calligraphy by Izzy Pludwinski. A separate volume, in English, contains an introduction by the artist, a commentary by Rabbi Shlomo Fox, and a translation and explanation of the images. World Digital Library.
