This Prayer Book was published in Vienna in 5660 – 1900. The book is in Hebrew and English. Its English title is ‘For Form of Prayers for the Feast of New-Year, According to the Custom of the German and Polish Jews.’ It is a testament to the diverse backgrounds of worshippers who have historically been connected to Sandys Row.

A handwritten inscription inside reads: ‘June 30th 1906. Presented to J. Horwich by Mr. Mrs L. Horwich.’ The prayer book was one of many miscellaneous books in the basement of Sandys Row Synagogue.
