Cairo Genizah : Letter

Samuel Skandarī

Cairo Genizah

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Late letter (14th century or later), preceded by a decorated ב״ה. The writer addresses his older brother (אל אחי אשר כנפשי) either as גביר or אדון. It mostly concerns news about family and acquaintances (for instance that Obadiah has recovered and been able to enter the bathhouse, and that a son was born to Solomon ha-Kohen). The abbreviation תל (‘thanks be to God’) is often used, unmarked. Signed הצעיר Samuel Skandarī. </p>
