The Had Gadya, a charming ten-verse Aramaic ditty based on a German ballad, is chanted at the conclusion of the Passover seder. This song has been variously interpreted both textually and visually. Its verses describe a young goat, recently purchased by a father (made personal to each individual chanter by the pronoun “my” father). The goat is consumed by a cat, and the song continues to recount a succession of assailants until God destroys the final perpetrator, ending the vicious cycle. Generally considered an allegory for the oppression and persecution of the Jewish people, the various villains have been likened to aggressor nations in Jewish history. Yet God’s triumph leaves hope for Jewish survival. The poem has been frequently illustrated as part of the Haggadah-the text for the seder ritual-a work that in itself was an illustrator’s favorite because of its narrative simplicity and popular appeal.
