New edition of Sarajevo Haggadah published

December 17, 2018

The National Museum of Bosnia and Herzegovina recently announced that after two years of dedicated work, they have published a new facsimile of the Sarajevo Haggadah. The Haggadah is one of the oldest Sephardic Haggadahs in the world, originating in Barcelona around 1350.

The Museum advised that it was delighted to be the independent publisher of the Sarajevo Haggadah, an outstanding monument of medieval Jewish art, in this high quality and in-depth edition. The edition reflects the highest standards in the art of facsimile production, bringing the splendid world of illuminations, vivid colours and gold of the 14th century original to the 21st century reader.

This edition includes the facsimile and a separate detailed study entitled “The Sarajevo Haggadah, History and Art”, by Professor Shalom Sabar of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

The English edition is available for purchase through the Museum’s official web store.
