The Wolloch Haggadah: A Conversation with the Artist with David Wander and David Kraemer

Hosted By: Orange County Jewish Community Scholar Program ("CSP")

The beautiful and moving Wolloch Pesach Haggadah In Memory of the Holocaust, a unique manuscript “infused with hope and compassion,” features full-page illustrations by American artist David Wander and illuminated calligraphy by Rabbi Yonah Weinrib. It was commissioned by Zygfryd and Helene Wolloch in memory of their parents who died in the Holocaust. After being completed in 1984, it was published in bound-book form for the benefit of Yad Vashem. Copies of the original portfolio, containing 59 hand-printed pages, have been presented to major libraries and collections of Judaica. Join us as we explore the Wolloch Haggadah with designer and artist, David Wander, in conversation with Rabbi and scholar, Dr. David Kraemer. Some questions we will explore include, What ideas informed the creation of this Haggadah? What is the significance of its symbols? How does consideration of the Holocaust enhance our experience of the Exodus, and vice versa? And finally, how can this unique Haggadah be used at your seder?
