The Ungerleider Collection of Haggadot, presenting the text recited on the first two nights of the Jewish Passover, represents a remarkable array of geographic, linguistic and temporal diversity. Encompassing more than 400 years of Jewish culture, from the Ottoman Empire in 1505 to the State of Israel in the 1950s, the collection is composed of haggadot from Asia, Africa, Europe, North America and the Near East. It incorporates a wide range of languages from Jewish communities across the globe, many long since dispersed. Exhibition Gallery, John Hay Library, 20 Prospect Street.
