I found one word in 9 ½ Narrow by Patricia Morrisroe.
1. mohel – “A nearsighted mohel?”
A mohel is a person who performs the Jewish rite of circumcision.
This word came from Come Rain or Come Shine by Jan Karon.
2. thurible – “Somewhere in there, he had conducted a house blessing and a clinic blessing, replete with thurible.”
A thurible is a metal censer suspended from chains, in which incense is burned during worship services.
