Prayers & Prayerbooks

Early American Reform Prayerbooks
In the United States in the 1800's, many congregations saw the need for new prayerbooks. They wanted shorter services, translations of the prayers, less repetition and to incorporate European elements of reform as well as American values. The HUC-JIR libraries have many examples of these prayerbooks and as well as congregational hymnals. - See more at:
