A groundbreaking partnership between SHEKEL’s graphic design studio “Between the Lines” and Israel’s famed Koren publishing house, is happy to announce the launch of a one-of-a-kind Haggadah.

Exquisitely illustrated by three highly talented SHEKEL artists: Sahar, who has Downs Syndrome, and is known for his stunning color techniques; Raphael, on the autism spectrum, whose sharp beautifully rendered drawings caught the eye of Koren; and Yafit who, using technological aids to overcome the physical limitations of MS, enriched the work with her stunning and popular trade-mark Eretz Yisrael motifs.

All three artists, who work at SHEKEL’s vocational rehabilitation center in Jerusalem, were discovered by SHEKEL’s graphic design studio. Realizing their special talents and skills, the studio, together with Koren publishing house, embarked on a special project to publish this spectacular Haggadah.
