20 Description

The frame contains a depiction of Jerusalem shown as a walled city towards which the Messiah on a horseback is approaching. Before him, a herald blowing a trumpet is coming and on the hills surrounding the city, Jews going towards Jerusalem are visible. The representation echoes a woodcut from the Passover Haggadah printed in Venice in 1609 and at the same time, it alludes to the Midrashic statement that in the messianic times, all feast will be abolished except for that of Purim (Yalkut Shimoni Mishlei 9:2 (944)).The text panel above the frame is blank. It is likely that this panel was planned for the benedictions and/or liturgical poems.
