The purpose of the Passover seder is to relate and pass down the story of Exodus, the liberation from Egyptian bondage and deliverance into the Promised Land, to the next generation.

The biblical verses, Psalms, hymns, and traditions thereof are contained in and read from a Haggadah. A particularly splendid Baroque specimen of this religious manual is the Darmstadt Pesach Haggadah , made in in Copenhagen, which was both written and artfully decorated by Yehuda Leib ben Eliyya Ha-Cohen.

Jewish illuminators have, as a rule, always worked in a very traditional manner. In contrast to his colleagues, Yehuda Leib was primarily concerned with European artistic creation, particularly with the Danish tradition and acquired a new painting style bridging the gap between the Baroque—Rococo and the classical periods. The scholarly commentary by Ulf Haxen is in English and provides an introduction to the historic background of the manuscript.

It also explains the significance of the author and painter of the manuscript for the history of art, describing every single page separately. Half binding in leather and marbled patterned paper and with marble patterned flyleaves. All folios are cut according to the original. With marbled patterned paper and with marble patterned flyleaves. Like the Bible and the Mahzor, it is among the most eminent illustrated Jewish religious manuscripts, since the Torah was never embellished with pictures.

During the 18th century, the Pesach-Haggadah was virtually rediscovered by the arts, particularly by Danish artists working predominantly on this subject. The fact that in modern times, long after the invention of print, books — among them Jewish liturgical texts — were still copied by hand and lavishly decorated with the greatest care is hardly known, but impressively documented in this manuscript. Its illustrations of the relevant text passages represent ritual, biblical and eschatological aspects of liturgy.

The miniatures by Yehuda Leib Ha-Cohen resemble small paintings and illustrate topics from the Pesach-Haggadah with great enthusiasm for details and precision, while also providing an insight into contemporary life. The rise of Jewish communities in Denmark goes back to the 17th century when King Christian IV encouraged Jews to move there for economic and political reasons.

One of the larger communities was Copenhagen , with approximately a hundred thousand members. This community offered a cosmopolitan atmosphere and a wide range of cultural and economic activities. The Jewish population in Denmark lived in relative peace and prosperity due to the flourishing economy, which also provided a basis for numerous artistic commissions.

Jewish scribes and painters thus discovered a favorite in the Pesach-Haggadah as an object for exquisite decoration. The Pesach-Haggadah commemorates the liberation of the people of Israel from servitude in Egypt and the Exodus to the Promised Land , the main intention being to pass on this message of liberation from one generation to the next, as "every person in whatever period they live has the obligation to consider themselves as being part of the great exodus from Egypt".

The prospect of final deliverance is drawn from a messianic perspective. Passover begins on the 14th day of the month of Nisan, i. At night, every family has their Passover lamb and unleavened bread matza , bitter herbs, and wine.

Over the years, a fixed order seder was established for this religious meal, according to which the liturgy was held. The basic form of this order is about a thousand years old. It was later compiled in a small book called Pesach-Haggadah.

This book comprises biblical verses, hymns and Psalms, and records of religious customs. The head of the family reads it on the first and second evenings of Passover. As this happens during the ceremony and the meal, most manuscripts show marks of use, such as stains of wine. We know of two Haggadot that he produced in Denmark, the Darmstadt Codex from the year and a second one from He was also influenced by the etchings of Daniel Nikolaus Chodowiecki.

His nuances in effects of light and shade conjure up a magical atmosphere. In spite of his having been influenced by other artists, Leib developed an innovative style of his own, which makes his pictures truly unique. Images of Darmstadt Pessach Haggadah facsimile edition.

Reading the Haggadah at the Seder table is a fulfillment of the mitzvah to each Jew to "tell your son" of the Jewish liberation from slavery in Egypt as described in the Book of Exodus in the Torah "And thou shalt tell thy son in that day, saying: It is because of that which the L ORD did for me when I came forth out of Egypt. Sephardi and Mizrahi Jews also apply the term Haggadah to the service itself , as it constitutes the act of "telling your son. Kadeish is the Hebrew imperative form of Kiddush. Acting in a way that shows freedom and majesty, many Jews have the custom of filling each other's cups at the Seder table. The Kiddush is traditionally said by the father of the house, but all Seder participants participate by reciting the Kiddush and drinking at least a majority of a cup of wine.
