Detail Description

Tehillim with a running YIddish translation, appended to a Korban Mincha women's prayer book. The recital of the whole Book of Psalms is widespread, whether as an act of piety by saintly individuals, or by groups of unlearned people. For this purpose "societies of reciters of psalms" (hevrot tehillim) were and continue to be formed, and in recent times a special society has been formed in Jerusalem whereby two separate groups recite the whole Book of Psalms daily at the Western Wall. The psalms are included in their entirety in all large prayer books..

Bound with Korban Mincha, (title in facsimile) a year round women's prayer book in Hebrew with Yiddish translation and commentary following the rites of Sefard. Includes daily and holiday liturgies, Pirke Avot, tehinot (supplications) for many occasions including candle lighting, family income, New Moon, Elul, High Holidays, childbirth, ritual immersion in mikvah, several supplications for pregnant women, night time prayers, and bad dream resolution supplication.

In 1847 the Shapira printing press was established by the three brothers Hanina Lipa, Aryeh Leib, and Joshua Heschel Shapira, sons of R. Samuel Abraham Abba Shapira, the printer in Slavuta. Until 1862 this was one of the only two Hebrew presses the Russian government permitted to operate in the whole of Russia, the other being in Vilna. This press had 18 hand presses and four additional large presses. In 1851 Aryeh Leib broke away and established his own printing press in Zhitomir. In these two establishments only sacred books of every kind were printed.
