Free

The Tuttleman Library at Gratz College is hosting an exhibit of historic Haggadot. The Haggadot were created through the centuries, in many languages and under a wide range of circumstances. Some were created from memory — during wars, in ghettos, on kibbutzim.

The highlight of the exhibit is a presentation by Dr. Ierachmiel (Yerach) Daskal. Dr. Daskal is a pathologist with an M.D. and a Ph.D. — and a passion for collecting historic Haggadot. He will share several originals that he has chosen from his own personal collection of over 800 samples.

For more information, contact Hope Matles (215-635-7300, x172). To register, complete the online form.

Refreshments will be served at this event. Admission is free, but a small donation to the library would be greatly appreciated.
