This is a seder in a shul at the Lower Eastside of New York, which I attended after I arrived in the city, just married. I later set up my studio in this shul. The table with a lot of strange guests (the crowd resembled a Three Penny Opera) is surrounded by the ghosts of the crowd that fled Europe and came to this shul in the past, the angels have their own seder, and a couple enters at the invitation of the Hagada:Let all who are hungry come and eat.... A tired person sleeps on the bench of the shul, and the peasant with the ax is kept outside at this layl shimurim.
This painting is not made on canvas like most of my work but on board. It is framed (wood).
