Transcribed by Yitshak Tsoref; illustrated by Ya? Akov Tsoref. Facsimile of a manuscript from the Moldovan family collection. The Bordeaux Haggadah is the first illuminated 19th century manuscript haggadah made in France. This Haggadah Facsimile includes one large map of the Holy Land and a large map of the Holy City of Jerusalem, printed in 1813. "This Haggadah reflects the affluence and position of the Sephardic Jews of France in the nineteenth century. A Sephardic community was established in Bordeaux soon after the expulsion from Spain and Portugal at the end of the 15th century, where they became well-established and prosperous. The artistic elements and the composition of this Haggadah are in the tradition of the Neo-classical Empire style of the Napoleonic Era. Besides the standard Sephardi Passover liturgy, there are instructions in Ladino, as well as some translations of the Hebrew into Aramaic. The text is divided evenly between Hebrew and French.
