Detail Description

Voulme 3 (of 2) of Mahzor with Yiddish translation following the rites and customs of Poland, Risen, Lithuania, Bohemia, Moravia.  The text is printed with punctuation in the upper half of the page and the translation in Vaybertaytsh font on the lower part of the page.

Vaybertaytsh (Yiddish: װײַבערטײַטש‎, 'women's taytsh') or mashket (Yiddish: מאַשקעט‎), is a semi-cursive script typeface for the Yiddish alphabet. From the 16th until the early 19th century, the mashket font distinguished Yiddish publications, whereas Hebrew square script were used for classical texts in Hebrew and Aramaic, and "Rashi" script for rabbinic commentaries and works in LadinoMashket was used for printing Yiddish in the Old Yiddish literature period, and later as the primary script used in texts for and by Jewish women, ranging from folktales to women's supplications and prayers, to didactic works.
