The title page says, "Passover Haggada", text and explication in Arabic according to the Baghdadi custom. "The manuscript, in cursive script, which is clearly influenced by the Lurianic Kabbalah, begins with the Bedikat Hametz ceremony and the evening prayers, with the text of the Haggada appearing afterwards. Unlike the rest of the prayers and piyyutim that appear in the manuscript, the Haggada is translated into Judeo-Arabic, with each Hebrew paragraph followed by the same paragraph in translation.
