Judah), on behalf of the community of the city of the great king (i.e. the Jewish community in Jerusalem, and at the end of the letter referred to specifically as the Rabbanites who dwell in the holy city), to Sahlān, Allūf and ‘Head of the Row’, b. Abraham he-Ḥaver (his titles in Arabic on the verso also include Abū ʿUmar), in Fusṭāṭ. Solomon expresses gratitude for Sahlān’s continuous fundraising efforts to assist the Jewish community in Jerusalem in payment of its heavy tax burden. </p>
