Fanny Neuda’s compilation of teḥinot, Stunden Der Andacht (1855), is the first book known to be authored and published by a Jewish woman. In 2013, a full digital transcription of the work was completed by the Open Siddur Project and German Wikisource volunteers. (Huzzah!)

 

 

I have the great pleasure to be sharing a crowdsourced labor of love, the first book of prayers that the Open Siddur Project has completely proofread on Wikisource: Stunden Der Andacht (Hours of Devotion) by Fanny Schmiedl Neuda, first published in 1855.

I initially prepared the transcription from the 145-page, 1858 edition of Stunden Der Andacht with Tesseract-OCR (using the VietOCR user interface) and a scan of the book made by Google Books. Many thanks to Open Siddur Project contributor and volunteer, Chajm Guski, for helping to upload the transcription to the German Wikisource site. Many thanks go to the untold numbers of volunteer proofreaders, both veteran Wikisource volunteers as well as the many folk who came to proofread the text after seeing a tweet, Facebook status update, or reading an email asking for German fluent readers for help.
