"Rabbits and Lettuce: The History of the Haggadah in Art and Text" – An Evening with Dr. Joshua Kulp

There are more versions of the Passover Haggadah than any other book in Jewish history, including the Bible and Siddur. And many of them have pictures of rabbits! Come and learn how generations of Jews made the Haggadah relevant to their lives. Learn how they adopted the symbols of the seder to the regions throughout the world in which they lived. And most important, take home some new tidbits to impress your friends and family at your own seder!

Free and Open to the Community – Teens encouraged to join!
