A Selection of Prayers, Psalms, and Other Scriptural Passages, and Hymns for Use at the Services of the Jewish Religious Union, London (1903) is the second, revised provisional edition of the nascent Jewish Religious Union of London, the pioneering Liberal (Reform movement) congregation in the United Kingdom. This edition, with 127 pages, is much expanded over the first edition which contained 42 pages.

The present Edition of the “Selection of Prayers, Psalms, and Hymns” is, like its predecessor, of a provisional character. It is, however, considerably larger, and will, it is hoped, be found more adequate for the needs of worshippers at the Services of the Jewish Religious Union. For a number of metrical versions or paraphrases of Psalms, the Committee are indebted to Mrs. Henry Lucas, who has also permitted them to make further selections from her “Jewish Year.” Both in the prose and metrical portions of the book, considerable use has been made of the liturgical poems of Jehuda ha-Levi. Most of the prayers now added are derived or adapted from the traditional Jewish Liturgy, but a few have been specially written for the Services of the Union.
