Description Information
   Second edition. Frontpiece, [4], 664, 16 of 18 pp., 143:124 mm., wide margins, light age staining, stamps. A very good copy bound in modern boards.
   Comprehensive Hebrew-German prayer book for the entire year. The volume begins with a full page copper plate front-piece with the names of the famed artist M. Oppenheim and of a C. Kappes below, amd beneath the names the verse, “Go in peace; and the God of Israel grant you the petition [that you have asked of him]” (I Samuel 1:17). The title page states in Hebrew that it is Tefillat Yisrael and in German that it is Israelitisches Gebertbuch hebräisch und deutsch. (Jewish prayer book in Hebrew and German). There is a detailed table of contents and then the prayers. The Hebrew is on the right and on the facing page is the German in Fraktur. A small part of the morning prayers are not translated, for example korbanot (animal offerings). The Hebrew is in square vocalized letters, except for explanatory notes which are in Vaybertaytsh. The prayers encompass daily prayers, complete Sabbath services, Pirkei Avot, Rosh Hodesh, festivals, Rosh HaShanah, Yom Kippur, and Hanukkah services. Among the other features are grace after meals, separation of Hallah, Zadok ha-Din, Sefirat ha-Omer, and Pidyon ha-ben. At the end of the volume, reading from left to right with its own title page, is an appendix entirely in German for women, Einige erbauliche Gebete in deutcher Sprache fur Israelitische Frauen auf verschiedene Verhältnisse des Lebens (some edifying prayers for Jewish women on different conditions of life). These include prayers to be recited for ill children and at gravesides.
