The Sarajevo Haggadah: A Masterpiece of Jewish Art and Its Incredible Journey

Hosted By: National Library of Israel USA (NLI USA)

Nowadays considered Bosnia and Herzegovina’s most valuable national art treasure, the Sarajevo Haggadah is popularly known as the most beautiful Hebrew book ever produced. The famous illuminated Haggadah was created in the second quarter of the fourteenth century in one of the Jewish communities in the northeastern part of the Kingdom of Aragon (Catalonia). The fascinating illuminations reflect the high cultural and artistic achievements of Sephardic Jewry at the time. The fate of the codex after the expulsion of the Jews from Spain (1492), until it eventually reached Sarajevo, remains a mystery. Untangle the threads of its 500-year story.
