Rabbi will lead talk on rare Haggadah

Posted: April 5, 2014 at 2:40 a.m.

Catherine Petersen, library director at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, flips through the pages of a rare, first edition Haggadah for Passover. The book, featuring watercolor drawings by artist Ben Shahn, will be the subject of a talk by Rabbi Jack Zanerhaft on Monday at the museum.

On the first night of Passover, Jews the world over will read from the Haggadah as they gather around the seder table. The book serves as a guide, relating the story of the exodus from Egypt and setting the order for the seder.
