Bragadin, Venice: 1692.

Chaim Benveniste (1603-1673), Chief Rabbi of Izmir, Turkey, is distinguished for his commentary to the Shulchan Aruch, Kenesseth HaGedolah. The present work, a brief halachic study to the Passover Hagadah, was co-opted in many later Hagadoth. Our Hagadah follows the Sephardic rite. It is two leaves shorter than the Hagadah according to the Aschkenazic rite with Benveniste's commentary issued by Bragadin that same year. The brevity is accounted for by the fact that the Sephardic version omits several Aschkenazic piyutim at the conclusion of the Hagadah.
