The Haggadah details - Jewish Passover... NYT 1st mention...



Item # 652072

January 27, 1878

THE NEW YORK TIMES, January 21, 1878

* Jewish Festivals & Rituals
* 1st NYT mention of The Haggadah Service with details
* The Passover, The Sabbath Day, The Feast of Tabernacles


Background: In 1840, as a partial response to what is now called the Damascus Blood Libel (accusation against the Jews regarding their rituals/practices), the London Times printed a detailed description of the Passover Feast (Haggadah). This has become a highly sought after collectible. Fast forward 38 years...

Page 8 of this issue has considerable details regarding various Jewish holy days, rituals, and festivals, which include: The Passover (Feast of Unleavened Bread), The Sabbath Day, The Feast of Tabernacles, and more. The description of the Passover Celebration includes additional details regarding The Haggadah. This is the first mention of The Haggadah, by name, printed in The New York Times. See images for more details.

Additional news of the day is found throughout the issue.

The issue is complete, but is separated at the spine. It is VERY brittle, and must be handled with extreme care. Due to its fragility, page 8 has been placed on top for easy viewing.
