Cairo Genizah : Letter

Cairo Genizah

<p style='text-align: justify;'>The fragment preserves the end of a letter, written in a largish hand with widely-spaced lines. It is addressed to an individual (ואנשי ביתך). The extant text consists mostly of blessings (לחזות המשיח בן דויד; לראות שכינת יוי). Blessings and greetings are also bestowed on Elʿazar and Solomon. It is dated תשרי [...]ז and closes with the ʿalāma ישע רב. Probably 12th-13th century. </p>
