Detail Description

Title: Andachtsbuch für fromme Israelitinnen : mit deutscher Uebersetzung : nebst neuen Gebeten

Year round prayerbook with a German translation on the opposite page, with a volume of Tehinot--special prayers-said by women and girls for both weekdays and holidays. The text is in German. Tehinot are supplications in piyyut form which originated in the tahanun prayer for the fasts of Monday and Thursday. The term was also transferred to piyyutim for the selihot days, and indeed both the construction and subject of the tehinnah are similar to selihot. The tehinnah is usually said quietly, its subject being the relationship between G-d and the people of Israel. It is sometimes constructed in rhymed verses, sometimes in rhymed rhetoric, or even unrhymed, in the style of a bakkashah. In addition to Hebrew tehinnot, there were Yiddish-German ones for women published in small brochures from the beginning of the 18th century in Bohemia (Prague), Switzerland (Basle), Germany (Sulzbach, Fuerth, Roedelheim), and many towns of Russia and Poland. Occasionally tehinnot were added as appendixes to editions of the prayer book.
