A fragment of Seder Haggadah shel Pesach. The Pesach Haggadah is the text that sets forth the order of the Passover Seder feast in the family home and describes the story of the Jews’ liberation from Egypt and their settlement of the Land of Israel. The ritual of the Seder involves prayers and blessings, as well as the eating of symbolic foods, such as unleavened bread (matzah).
The map shows the location of all the sites where the genizah items in the collections of the Jewish Museum in Prague were discovered (finds from other sites, such as Ivančice and Pacov, are not in the museum’s collections). Representative genizah items from each location are gradually being added to the museum’s website. Complete sets of genizah items can be found in the museum’s catalogue at collections.jewishmuseum.cz.
