A nő imája férjéért | A woman’s prayer for her husband, by Rabbi Arnold Kiss (1897)

Contributed on: 26 Aug 2021 by Aharon N. Varady (transcription) | Aharon N. Varady (translation) | Arnold Kiss |

This prayer by Rabbi Arnold Kiss for the well-being of a husband by their wife, “A nő imája férjéért,” was first published in his anthology of prayers for Jewish women, Mirjam (1897) on p.246-248. It doesn’t appear to me to have been translated in the subsequent German edition (1907). I’ve set my English translation side-by-side with the Magyar. –Aharon Varady . . .
