Stunden der Andacht (Hours of Devotion) was first published in 1855 and remained popular and widely-used until the middle of the 20th century. It is subtitled A Book of Prayer and Moral Uplift for Jewish Women and Girls, for use in personal and domestic prayer, as well as for all occasions in women?s lives. It is the first Jewish women?s prayer book to be written by a woman. In addition to containing formal Jewish worship practices, this work covered both public and private events in the life of a Jewish woman.
