A renowned 14th-century Haggadah is now available to browse on the iPad, The Jewish Chronicle reported.
The medieval “Rylands Haggadah,” originally created in Spain, was restored by experts at the University of Manchester’s John Rylands Library.
The app features a narration by Rabbi Shlomo Ellituv, the minister of the Spanish and Portuguese Congregation in Manchester.
“It’s a valuable resource for anyone who wants to learn more about Jewish culture,” explained Dr. Yaakov Wise, from the University of Manchester’s Centre for Jewish Studies.
The Haggadah is currently on display at the “Medieval Jewish Art in Context” exhibition in the Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art in New York City.
Each month, the Haggadah will be open to a different page, affording visitors the opportunity to follow the artist´s telling of the Jewish people’s exodus from the land of Egypt.
The Rylands Haggadah is available on the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. (IsraelNationalNews © 2012 05/02/12)
