A guidebook of Jewish traditions and ceremonies aimed at a Christian audience, written by a Jew.

Alexander Alexander (Alexander ben Judah Leib) was one of the pioneers of Hebrew printing in London, active in the 18th and 19th centuries. He had established his Hebrew press in London in 1770 and published the first bilingual Hebrew-English Common Prayer-book and Haggadah, and the first Hebrew Pentateuch with English translation by a Jew. Levy Alexander (1754-1853), his son and successor, published this Hebrew Ritual, with a personal dedication to His Royal Highness The Duke of Kent.

With an engraved illustration plate depicting the Tefillin (Phylacteries) and a Mezuzah case.
