The Rare and Magnificent Moss Haggadah
Wednesday, March 13, 1:30 pm
This exceptional work of art by David Moss must be seen to be believed. Moss, one of today’s finest living Judaic artists, revived the marriage ketubah as a major work of art, then turned to illumination and illustration of Jewish texts. In 1983 he was commissioned to create an individual hand-made haggadah — the Moss Haggadah — which became a splendid work created on vellum, containing paper cuts, gold and silver. Rabbi Steven Foster will provide detailed insight for this amazing masterpiece. A delicious kosher charosest tasting will follow the program. Price: $5 person; free for Mizel Museum and Congregation Emanuel. Held at Congregation Emanuel, 51 Grape Street, Denver.
