The Sarajevo Haggadah reflects partly on a time of peace between Jews, Muslims and Christians in Bosnia for 500 years. The Jewish Museum of Australia will present musical ensemble SARAY Iluminado, along with lecture, exhibition, projection and music to illuminate the history of the world’s most celebrated Pesach text on Sunday, March 22nd.
The project tells of the Haggadah (written around 1350), following its journey from Medieval Spain to the turbulent, recent times in the Balkans and the multicultural Bosnian capital, Sarajevo.
Find out how you can help us bring this inspiring story to life. Join us as we tell a powerful tale of survival, hope, resilience and humanity; reminding us to fight complacency and to celebrate human unity.
