Aus der Wiener israelitischen Cultusgemeinde 5624: Sieben Zeit-Predigten by Adolf Jellinek. Wien: Herzfeld & Bauer, 1864. Adolf Jellinek (1821-1893) was a famous and well-renowned Viennese preacher and scholar. Some 200 of his sermons were published, and many were translated into Hebrew. Jellinek’s sermons tended to relate to actual problems of the day, yet they also made brilliant and original use of aggadah and Midrash. Personally lenient in matters of ritual, he advocated a moderately liberal line, striving for unity in the community. He also opposed the omission from the prayer book of references to Zion and prayers for the restoration of sacrifices. This volume contains seven sermons intended for the Israeli community of Vienna. It is written in German, with some Hebrew.

Sechzig Toaste fuer alle festlichen Ereignisse des israelitischen Familien- und Vereinslebens von Benedict Hause by Benedict Hause. Frankfurt am Main: Verlag von J. Kauffmann, 1892. Benedict Hause lived from 1814-1896. This volume is a collection of sixty toasts to be used during Jewish customs and celebrations.
