The Sarajevo Haggadah Project

The Sarajevo Haggadah Project is a live performance about the illuminated Jewish manuscript that now also stands as a symbol of hope, peace and reconciliation in the Balkans and throughout the world.

Performed by the Director of the Haggadah Association and the Cultural Advisor of the Sarajevan Jewish Community, Dr Eli Tauber, and Saray Iluminado, this event sheds light on the (hi)story of the Haggadah from its birth in Barcelona through to its turbulent yet resilient re-settlement in the Bosnian capital, Sarajevo.  A poetic work about reconciliation, humanity and hope, this event is for everyone from families to lovers of music, theatre, history, activism and live performance.
