Rare Karaite Haggadah. [Cairo, C. 1940]
Seder Haggadah Kefi Minhag HaYisraelim HaKara'imֲ printed by the community in Egypt.
Facsimile print of the haggadah printed in Budapest in 1903 (See Otzar HaHaggadot 1618). Jacket cover per earlier publications.
There is a comment on the back of the title page - a warning from the Karaite Beit Din in Egypt that each copy of the haggadah must contain the stamp of the Karaite sect. The copy before us contains such a stamp.
Rare haggadah! Not listed by Ya'ari, and does not appear inֲ Otzar HaHaggadot. The bibliography of the Hebrew book no. 000201245 lists a haggadah like this one, but with the name of a printer (see supplements by Ben-Menachem to 18).
17 pages, 20 cm; very fine condition. Jacket cover.
