NEUDA, FANNY [ GEB. SCHMIEDL ]
Stunden Der Andacht. Ein Gebet- Und Erbauungsbuch Für Israels Frauen Und Jungfrauen, Zur öffentlichen Und Häuslichen Andacht, So Wie Für Alle Verhältnisse Des Weiblichen Lebens.
. Prague, Brandeis, n.d. 26th edition , VIII, 176pp. Fanny Schmiedl Neuda (1819-1894).published the first Jewish women¿s prayer book to be written 'by a woman in 1855. In addition to containing formal Jewish worship practices, this work covered both public and private events in the life of a Jewish woman. Fanny Neuda (née Schmiedl, b. March 6, 1819 - d. April 6, 1894) was a Jewish writer best known for her popular collection of prayers, Stunden Der Andacht (1855). She was born in Lomnice (Lobnig), Moravia to the family of Rabbi Yehudah Schmiedl (1776-1855, present-day Czech Republic). After marrying Abraham Neuda (1812-1854), she moved to Loštice, where her husband served as rabbi. After Abraham Neuda's death in 1854, her book of prayers became widely published. She died at the age of 75 years in the spa town of Merano (present-day Italy). In 2015, a plaque honouring her was unveiled in Loshtice. Neuda's collection of Jewish prayers is unique by virtue of its being the first collection of Jewish prayers composed in German by a Jewish woman. Earlier collections of te?innot - petitionary prayers, comprising a growing literature of devotional works for prayer outside of the shul had been authored by Jewish men and less commonly by Jewish women. (See the prayer of Glückel of Hameln (1646-1724) translated by Kaeren Fish in A Jewish Women's Prayer Book (e.d. Aliza Lavie 2008)). After Neuda's work was published in 1855, it attained such great popularity among Jewish women in Central Europe, that it was published in more than 30 editions (some of which were illustrated).1. At least one siddur published by Raphael Jacob Fürstenthal in 1897 appended her complete Stunden Der Andacht to it.
