The three other registers are painted in an Egyptian style. The second register represents the Israelites in bondage in Egypt (oc. 1053.1.1).The third one represents Exodus (oc. 1053.1.2) and the bottom picture (oc. 1053.1.3) represents the Egyptians pursuing the Israelites. The text, GN., 15:14, is written at the bottom of the panel in block, golden Hebrew letters on a black background. The title is written on the lower half of the page, in bold block Hebrew letters : "הגדה של פסח" "Haggadah of Passover" The letters are painted in decorated turquoise contoured by a black line.

Artist/ Maker
Raban, Ze`ev (Painter, 1890-1970, teacher in Bezalel 1912- 1929)
(Unknown)
Since 1905, he studied in several places such as Munich and Brussels. In 1912 he moved to Eretz Israel where he immediately joined the Bezalel Academy and – until the school had to close in 1929 – Raban was one of its most important figures and teachers. He was a prolific and influential artist who created the cycles of the illustrations for several biblical books (Ruth, Esther, Job, and Songs of Songs) and for the Passover haggadah. His works include also playing cards decorated with biblical figures as well as the mural tiles and decorative elements for the buildings of the King David Hotel and YMCA in Jerusalem. In addition, he created religious objects such as Chanukah menorahs.
