<p style='text-align: justify;'>Recto: part of a poorly preserved letter, apparently from the first decade of the 11th century, to Joseph b. Bereḵya, representative of the Jerusalem yešiva in the Maghreb, sending greetings to Nathan ‘Head of the Congregations’, and also to his son Abraham (who would later become the first Nagid in the Maghreb), and also Ṣaliḥ b. Barhūn Tahertī, brother-in-law of the recipient, as well as Furayj. It urges action to be taken by the Jewish communities in the Maghreb regarding a collection for the Jerusalem yešiva and Joseph Ibn ʿAwkal’s stewardship of the funds. There is also mention of a legal claim involving Abraham b. Šaul Abī Nathan Av Bet Din. Verso: fragment from an unrelated Arabic text. </p>
