Description
   Schedule of prayer for the service on Yom Kippur following the customs and rites of Pressburg (Bratislava), capital of Slovakia; until 1918 in Hungary; former chartered capital of the kings of Hungary. It was one of the most ancient and important Jewish centers in the Danube region. The first Jews possibly arrived with the Roman legions. The Memorbuch of the community of Mainz commemorates the "martyrs of Pressburg" who perished in the First Crusade. Pressburg was the seat of many famous and noted rabbis and leaders of Judaism.
