Haggadot

Haggadot are prayer books for the family Passover Seder meal, which is celebrated at home.  Intended to involve the entire family, it's not unusual for a household's Haggadah to be illustrated even today.  Some of the historic Haggadot below are beautifully illuminated, which also reflects the wealth and patronage of their owners.
