Cairo Genizah : Legal document: geṭ

Cairo Genizah

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Recto: legal document stating that Nissim b. Sar Šalom ha-Levi, from Damascus but living in Egypt, had been found guilty of insulting, cursing and beating his wife Sutayt bat Ṭoviyya and was put under pressure to divorce her, but following his promise to reform (after the initial lines of the geṭ had already been written) the divorce was not completed. However, should the testimony of one man, Muḥriz b. Ṭahor ha-Levi the cantor, be recanted, it would on its own be sufficient to prove him guilty. Dated Tišri 1564 of the Seleucid Era (= 1252 CE) and signed by Ephraim b. Samuel the teacher. Verso: the incomplete bill of divorce. </p>
