The Library’s Dr. David Kraemer Discusses JTS’s Prato Haggadah on WNBC

“Here we’ve got an individual—not an expert—a person who wants to be able to celebrate the Passover Seder at his table with his family and his guests. He sits down, therefore, and painstakingly writes out this text.”

Watch the clip of Dr. David Kraemer, Joseph J. and Dora Abbell Librarian and Professor of Talmud and Rabbinics, on WNBC.

“We are thrilled that one of the finest Haggadot from 14th-century Spain, the Prato Haggadah, is currently on view in the Treasury at The Met Cloisters, on loan from The Library of the Jewish Theological Seminary.”
