Minhagim books

On this page we will publish minhagim (custom) books of various kehillot. Although some kehilot were only a few kilometers apart, their customs did vary. Except for the first two editions of הנהגת בית הכנסת which are in Yiddish and Hebrew, all minhagim books and manuscripts are in Dutch.
