Fanny Neuda (1819–1894), sister of the Vienna rabbi Abraham Adolf Schmiedl, published in his memory a prayer book in German for women, entitled, Stunden der Andacht, ein Gebet-und Erbauungsbuch fuer Israels Frauen und Jungfrauen, which attained great popularity among Jewish women in central Europe. It was the first prayer book of its kind to be written by a woman and took into account, besides the divine services, all the occasions in the life of a woman. Until the 1920s, 28 editions of the prayer book had been sold. In 1936 Martha Wertheimer published a revised version for the special conditions of Nazi Germany. An English translation by M. Maier, Hours of Devotion, was published in New York.
