Description Information
   Broadside, 180:208 mm., light age staining, creased, split on folds.
   Liturgigal poem for recitation on Rosh haShanah prior to the sounding of the shofar (ram's horn). Akedah (binding (of Isaac), the Pentateuchal narrative (Gen. 22:1–19) describing G-d's command to Abraham to offer Isaac, the son of his old age, as a sacrifice. Obedient to the command, Abraham takes Isaac to the place of sacrifice and binds him (va-ya'akod, Gen. 22:9, a word found nowhere else in the Bible in the active, conjugative form) on the altar. The angel of the L-rd then bids Abraham to stay his hand and a ram is offered in Isaac's stead. The Akedah became in Jewish thought the supreme example of self-sacrifice in obedience to G-d's will and the symbol of Jewish martyrdom throughout the ages.
