Overview

by Avner Moriah
 
For this limited edition haggadah, Israeli artist Avner Moriah, created a visual image in watercolors for each portion of the Passover seder.  As evocative models for the figures and images, the artist looked to Egyptian wall paintings and reliefs and the small human and animal figures of the early Bronze and Iron Ages - the time when the Israelites settled in the land of Israel.  For the colors, he looked to the blues, oranges and golds of the eternal Middle East landscape.  There are several recurring images throughout The Moriah Haggadah: the image of freedom, the images of family and the Hand of God carrying the Israelites out of slavery.  The roundel motif is used frequently in the Haggadah to represent the circular repetition of Jewish history and life.
