The Haggadah is a text that people of the Jewish faith read during the Passover Seder, a ritual meal commemorating God's deliverance of the Jews from their slavery in Egypt. The word Haggadah literally means "telling" and is related to a biblical verse, Exodus 13:8, instructing Jews to tell their children about the flight from Egypt. The oldest complete Haggadah dates from the 10th century, and Haggadot were first printed in the 15th century. For many centuries, handwritten Haggadah manuscripts were more common and popular than printed versions, a trend which began to reverse in the 19th century. There were many beautifully illuminated Haggadot produced in the medieval period.

The artist, Norman, has been working on his own illustrated Haggadah for the last two years and only now has begun to see the fruits of his work after writing the text for the first half of his own Haggadah. Norman wanted to use the traditional text and his Haggadah is, for the moment, only in the original Hebrew. And yes, his plan is to have the Haggadah digitally reproduced, first as a limited numbered series in its full scale, and also hopefully his Haggadah will be mass produced for the general public.

The dimensions of the original pages are 26 centimeters (10.5 inches) in width by 36 centimters (14 inches) in height.

Just follow the thumbnails below for the enlarged picture of each page. Please note that this area of his website will be under construction as the work progresses.

SPECIAL NOTE: What you are looking at is the atist's personal digital photographs and not professional scans for the reason that these pages below are presently in the last proofreading stages until they can be professionally scanned.
