Cairo Genizah : Letter

Cairo Genizah

<p style='text-align: justify;'>The tarjama of the letter is in Judaeo-Arabic, אלעבד Nathan al-Ḥazzān. This is followed by four short lines of biblical quotations before the letter proper. The extant text consists of elaborate rhymed blessings only (no names preserved), and the main text would probably (in light of the tarjama) have been written in Judaeo-Arabic. There are two lines of Arabic in the top margin, and a full page of Arabic script on verso. </p>
