Venice: ancient hagaddah and Jewish cemetery

From Saul Issroff in London, here's a head's-up about information about the Venice Haggadah of 1609 - one of the most beautiful early printed Passover tomes.

The article also contains a link to a travel article about the Venice Jewish Cemetery. Although written in 2000, the latter article is still an interesting view of a cemetery restoration.

For more up-to-date information, go to the the Jewish Museum of Venice, which offers tours of the cemetery, information on the synagogues and the community library and archives.
