Detail Description

Pocket size Book of Psalms. Hebrew text with supplemental liturgies for travellers on the sea, via rail, health, income, and other occassions. 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.


Hebrew Description

 ... ונלוו אליו עוד תפלות רבות... שהן תפלה בעד החולה, שנוי השם, סדר פדיון הנפש, תפלה לאיש על אשתו המעוברת, תפלה לת"ח [לתלמיד חכם] לאשה הנ"ל, תפלה על הפרנסה, תפלת הדרך ותפלה לעוברי דרך ברזל ויורדי הים...

[2] דף, רמו, [4] עמ’. 16°. רחבו גדול מארכו.
