Cairo Genizah : Letter

Solomon b. Elijah

Cairo Genizah

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter in the hand of Solomon b. Elijah to Ḥisday ha-Nasi concerning divorce. The husband demands to pay the marriage gift in installments (i.e. never completely) after he had suffered from her bad character. He threatens to leave the country and desert her. Solomon is probably not writing on his own behalf, as it is unlikely that he would consult a Karaite Nasi for a legal opinion. </p>
