"Women’s prayer embraces a whole world (...)" writes Arnold Kiss of Budapest in the foreword to the 100th edition of his prayerbook titled Mirjám. In this article I attempt to explore this world through the prayers of Jewish women. What role were they allotted? What place was designated for them in society? What role did they have in religious life? How were they and their everyday lives influenced by the changes in Jewish assimilation in Eastern Europe in the 19th century? To answer my questions I used the most popular Jewish women’s prayer-books published at the turn of the 19th to 20th century in the territory of the former Habsburg Empire. These were books in Hungarian or German. Their authors were well-to-do rabbis or the wives of rabbis belonging to the Jewish reform trend, living and working in a big city environment. The effect of Jewish emancipation was felt sooner here and so the demands for renewal also appeared sooner. For this reason the members of these congregations took the lead in modernisation and assimilation. These facts at the same time also determined the target audience for the books, consequently my analysis also focuses mainly on them
