Manuscript, “Mizmor di Buda” – About the Salvation of the Padova Community (Buda Purim) in 1684

Manuscript, "Sefer Mizmor di Buda, done by myself Shmuel David Marini. the custom is to recite this hymn in the month of Elul because of the troubles of the Padova community and G-d had compassion on them and redeemed them…therefore we say this hymn to thank G-d". [Padova], 1849.
the manuscript contains a hymn which the Padova community were accustomed to reciting in commemoration of the miracle performed for the community. During the Austro-Turkish war, a rumor spread that the Jews assisted the Turks in their struggle against the Christians during the battle over the city of Buda (Budapest) which incited masses to break into the Jewish ghetto in Padova on the 10th of Elul 1684. the Jews were miraculously saved from the massacre and the festival of "Purim Buda" was instituted and celebrated by Padova Jews each year on this date, in commemoration of this miracle. the entire story is described at length in the book "Pachad Yitzchak", by Rabbi Yitzchak Chaim Cohen MeHachazanim (Cantorini), Amsterdam 1785.
