Résumé du manuscrit
Josef (Juspa), sacristain de Worms (1604-1678), a consigné par écrit la vie quotidienne, les rites et les usages de la communauté juive de Worms, une des plus anciennes et des plus importantes d’Europe. Cet autographe de Joseph contient les commentaires sur le livre des prières, le Birkat ha-mazon (« prière après les repas »), sur la Haggada et les Pirqei Avot (« Traité des Pères »), et d’autres annotations sur les rites de prière et des notices autobiographiques. Les annotations sur les minhagim (« rites ») furent reprises dans l’édition imprimée du Minhagbuch de Worms, mais pourtant une grande partie de ce manuscrit resta inédite et constitue de ce fait une importante source pour l’histoire religieuse d’un des plus grands centres juifs d’Europe. Le manuscrit a appartenu entre autres au rabbin Michael Scheyer, et plus tard à la collection privée de Salman Schocken à Jérusalem. (red)

One of the oldest and most important Jewish communities in Europe was in Worms. It was the site of the rabbinic and scholarly activities of many great Jewish leaders, first and foremost among them Rashi. The scholarship and ancient traditions characteristic of the Jewish community in Worms are reflected in the minhagim (customs) that Juspa, the author of this volume, and others recorded and preserved. These customs reflect Jewish life in the synagogue and the home throughout the entire year. In minute detail and with close attention to all manifestations of religious behavior, both public and private, the ways of everyday life are revealed in Juspa’s works.
Juspa was born in Fulda in 1604 and died in Worms in 1678. He was a student of Elijah Loanz, the Ba’al Shem of Worms (cat. no. 27). As shammes, Juspa served the Worms community in many capacities, including those of scribe, notary, trustee, mohel, and cantor. He was a talented writer and compiler; he paid special attention to the music of the synagogue and also composed poems. Juspa’s works are a mine of information on the Jewry of Worms and beyond. He wrote the Wormser Minhagbuch and Ma’aseh Nissim, in which he retold stories of Worms Jewry as recounted by the elders of the community. In addition he authored Sefer Likkutei Yosef, displayed here.
Previously in the Schocken Library in Jerusalem, this autograph manuscript contains later ownership entries, including testimony that the manuscript served as a pledge that was redeemed in 1782 by Rabbi Michael Scheyer. The original text includes commentaries on the prayer book, the Grace after Meals, the Passover Haggadah, and the Sayings of the Fathers, interspersed with records of prayer-related customs and autobiographical remarks. The comments on minhagim were incorporated into the printed edition of the Wormser Minhagbuch, but the bulk of the manuscript remains unpublished. This carefully written codex therefore serves as a primary source for the religious history of one of the most significant Jewish communities in Europe.

From: A Journey through Jewish Worlds. Highlights from the Braginsky collection of Hebrew manuscripts and printed books, hrsg. E. M. Cohen, S. L. Mintz, E. G. L. Schrijver, Amsterdam, 2009, S. 90.
