Detail Description

The cholera pandemic (1846–1860) was the third major outbreak of cholera originating in India in the nineteenth century that reached far beyond its borders, which researchers  believe may have started as early as 1837 and lasted until 1863. In Russia, more than one million people died of cholera. In 1853–54, the epidemic in London claimed over 10,000 lives, and there were 23,000 deaths for all of Great Britain. This pandemic was considered to have the highest fatalities of the 19th-century epidemics.


Hebrew Description

אחר... תפלת מנחה יתחיל החזן...

כפי הנראה תוקנה התפילה בעת אחת ממגיפות החולירע באירופה, ונועדה לקהילה הספרדית באמשטרדם.
