Detail Description

Liturgies and supplications for the High Holiday period following the rites of Swabia and Switzerland. The so called “Medinat Schwaben” formed a unique Jewish-German cultural landscape which experienced its zenith in the first half of the 19th century. The majority of Jewish communities belonged to one of two distinct political entities: the margraviate of Burgau south of the Danube and the earldom of Oettingen to its north. The political conflicts between the house Hapsburg, the local gentry and the civic leadership in the case of Burgau [Ullmann 1999] and the interconfessional strife between the Catholic and Protestant branches of the Oettingens provided the Jewish communities with enough "wiggle room" to ease their precarious struggle for existence. The Jewish communities formed part of villages within these political entities which were comprised of Jews, Catholics and Protestants. In some of those villages Jews occasionally even formed a numerical majority. The Jewish communities maintained a tight network of familial and cultural interconnections extending to communities in adjacent regions, such as Wassertrüdingen in Unterfranken as well as Laupheim and Buchau in Baden-Wuerttemberg.


Hebrew Description

(הסכ’ תקס"ט)

עם קדם-שער: סליחה ערוכה... כוללת הסליחות מכל השנה כמנהג מדינות שוואבען ושווייץ...

אין כאן סליחות לכל השנה. בקולופון נאמר: "סליחות לתענית שני וחמישי ושני... עשרה בטבת ותענית אסתר ושבעה עשר בתמוז, נוהגים רוב העולם... לאומרם כסדר שנדפסו בהתפלות ואינם רוצים להטריח עצמם להביא הסליחות לבית הכנסת וא"כ... למותר להציגם פה".

כן נשמטו הפירוש, סדר הפרת נדרים וסדר כפרות והקדמת ר’ אליעזר לאזי, שבאו בדפוס פיורדא תקמ"ב.

באותה שנה יצאה מבית-דפוס זה הוצאה אחרת "כמנהג... עלזאס", עם אותה ההסכמה, ובשער שם התאריך של הדפוס: תק"ע. מסתבר שגם ההוצאה הנוחכית נדפסה בשנת תק"ע.
