18th Century Jewish Haggadah manuscript found in garage


An 18th Century Jewish manuscript found in a garage during a house clearance is expected to fetch a six-figure sum.

The rare Haggadah, a text used by Jews on the first nights of Passover, is thought to date back to 1726.

The handwritten text, painted on goat skin, was spotted in a cardboard soup box at a Bury home. The Jewish couple who lived there had recently died.

It is listed at between £100,000 and £150,000, but auctioneers say it could sell for much more.

Experts believe it ended up in the UK after it was smuggled out of Belgium by a family during World War II. Read more.
