Manuscript in Hebrew and Italian, on paper.
Italy, ca. 19th century.
MS X893 J7496
Rare Book and Manuscript Library
This short manuscript, probably from the 19th century, contains a heartfelt prayer for peace in Europe. An Italian benediction for Italy's soldiers which follows the Hebrew prayer indicates that the prayer would have been recited by Jews in Italy after its unification in 1861, but it is unclear whether the prayer refers to a specific conflict.
