Description Information
   Single sheet of paper 228:166 mm., light age staining, creased on fold.
Paragraph 1    The top half of this paper contains the Hebrew and German of two sentences from Psalm 25 (verse 5 and 6) which are to be sung by the choir. The English translation is:
Guide me in your truth and teach me,
for you are G-d, my Savior,
and my hope is in you all day long.
6 Remember, O LORD, your great mercy and love,
for they are from of old.

The bottom part of the sheet contains the prayer that the Rabbis will recite (and which will also be sung by the choir). These are two sentences from Proverbs (chapter 4, verses 1 and 2). They translate as follows: Hear, ye children, the instruction of a father, and attend to know understanding. 2 For I give you good doctrine, forsake ye not my law.
