School haggadah



(HAGGADAH). School haggadah. Israel: Tel-Nordau School, 1961. Oblong octavo, staple-bound as issued, original pictorial tan paper wrappers. $600.

Interesting Israeli haggadah from the Tel-Nordau School (founded in 1926), in original wrappers.

In the early days of Israeli statehood, haggadahs were very much a DIY project. Inspired by the kibbutz movement, which routinely printed their own haggadot—often incorporating the social concerns of the day—other seder-holding groups in Israel began to create their own, from schools to community centers. This haggadah, created for Bet-Sefer Tel-Nordau (established 1926), incorporates illustrations inspired by 1960s Judaica and is printed in typical kibbutz style—cheap, staple-bound, and only meant to last for a single year's seders.

Interior unusually clean, minor staining, light wear, and toning to extremities of wrappers. Extremely good condition.
