Siḡmār, on behalf of the Jerusalemite congregation in Fusṭāṭ, to the Nagid Jacob b. ʿAmram, in Qayrawān, concerning the conflict between the Gaʾon Solomon b. Judah, and his rival Nathan b. Abraham, and asking the Nagid, who had previously petitioned the Muslim official Abū l-Qāsim Ibn al-Uḵuwwa on Nathan’s behalf, to show his renewed support for the legitimate Gaʾon, Solomon. The writer also mentions the arrival in Fusṭāṭ of the Nasi Daniel b. ʿAzariah, grandson of the Exilarch Solomon, and his efforts to reform the conduct of the Egyptian Jewish communities in respect of owning slave girls and enjoying secular music.
