My Hymnals - A collection, a hobby or an obsession?
I received 3 new hymnals in the mail yesterday and I was giddy with excitement. How many hymnals can one person own? No number is too high in my opinion, but I'm currently up to 7, and I can't wait for more!
What do I have, you ask?
Kol Zimroh, A Hymn Book - Cincinnati, OH 1885 (JUST GOT IT!)
Union Hymnal for Jewish Worship - 1914
The Service Hymnal - Philadelphia, PA 1922 (JUST GOT IT!)
Union Hymnal Songs and Prayers for Jewish Worship - 1940
Sabbath Eve Services and Hymns - New York, NY 1944 (JUST GOT IT!)
Union Hymnal Songs and Prayers for Jewish Worship - 1954
The Hymnal 1982 - New York, NY 1982
Currently on the look out for the 1897 Union Hymnal and Schirë jeschurun: Gesänge für den israelitischen Gottesdienst! Let me know if you see these!
