Augsburg Sidur 1947

March 13, 2014

Among the first Hebrew prayer books published in Augsburg after the defeat of the Nazi regime was the reprint of the famous בית יעקב Sidur of Altona rabbi Jakob Emden who died about the time of the American independence. As it can be seen on the title page, the print is dated “Augsburg, 708 “. Hardly any of the approx. 80 copies which were printed in Ulmer Str. Kriegshaber and used in the services of the synagogue in Kriegshaber have survived.
