Description Information
   22 ff., 164:112 mm., nice margins, light age and damp staining, few wormholes. A good copy bound in contemporary paper wrappers, stained.
   Prayers to be recited the evening preceeding Rosh Hodesh following the custom of the Italian congregation. The text of the volume is in a single column set in square vocalized letters, excepting instructions which are unvocalized.

The Roman (Italian) rite, also called Minhag ha-Lo’azim, is in use in Rome, in the interior of Italy, in a few communities in Salonika and Constantinople, and also in the Italian synagogue in Jerusalem. Peculiar to this rite are: Le’eila Le’eila in the usual Kaddish; Keter in all Kedushot; different wording to the Amidah; different tahanunim (ve-Hu Rahum is missing); a special piyyutic version of the Arvit for Friday evening (Asher Killah Ma'asav) and its Amidah (U-me-Ahavatkha); kerovot for the Day of Atonement and all the fast days, but not for Rosh Ha-Shanah and other festivals. A number of piyyutim had already been removed from the mahzor before the invention of printing.
