Description
   Year round prayerbook for women in Judeo-German of specialized prayers (tehinot) for various personal occassions that a Jewish mother encounters during her life.

Rare - Women's prayer books have generally not survived the test of time. The "alta Yiddishe mama" used these types of prayerbooks for daily recital of the Tehinot, while occupied with hosehold chores, shedding tears, and abusing the prayerbook. This copy, in the original binding, has survived reasonable well.
