This is Or l’Yisrael maḥzor for Yom Kippur (Star Hebrew Book Company 1927), with a Yiddish translation by “ben-Uriyah” whose full identity we have yet to uncover. If you know more, please leave a comment or contact us.
This is the only Yiddish edition of this Yom Kippur maḥzor published by Star Hebrew, and we think may be one of the last prayerbooks published with a Yiddish translation in the United States until fairly recently. The girsah of this maḥzor is in earlier editions by Star Hebrew attributed to an “M. Stern” which I think is likely Max Emanuel Stern (1811-1873), a Hungarian-born Hebraist, writer, poet, and translator who did indeed have a Yom Kippur maḥzor published before his death.
