The New Venice Haggadah

Available now: the New Venice Haggadah for Passover 2021

Venice was the capital of Jewish publishing, with the first complete Talmud, Torah commentaries, mysticism and, in 1609, a famous Haggadah in several languages. Marking the Ghetto quincentennial, Beit Venezia invited eight international Jewish artists to design a New Venice Haggadah after a full immersion in the city and a residency at the Scuola Internazionale di Grafica. They produced twenty-four beautiful etchings illustrating the Haggadah that were on show at the Jewish Museum of Venice.

The etchings are now offering a unique visual commentary of the New Venice Haggadah, published by Edizioni Damocle and printed in Venice. The Hebrew text is accompanied by a new English translation intended to invite discussion and interpretation. The New Venice Haggadah is informed by the spirit of the “original” while being consummately fresh, contemporary and innovative.

The book is available to order now.

The original etchings are also available as an exclusive set: contact us!
