Modern Jewish education placed a strong emphasis on the teaching of penmanship, which could later serve as a source of livelihood: in 1848, 11 of the 3274 family head living in Pest made their living with penmanship. Non-sacred texts were usually written in German with Hebrew cursive letters, according to the German spelling rules. We can see on this school writing sample texts written with different pens and in different fonts.
