Cairo Genizah : Letter

Joseph ha-Kohen he-Ḥaver the Fourth b. Jacob

Cairo Genizah

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter signed by Joseph ha-Kohen h[...] who surrounds his name with tiny (but mostly illegible) letters (Joseph ha-Kohen b. Jacob, the Ḥaver of Tyre, who signs elsewhere as Joseph ha-Kohen he-Ḥaver or ‘the Fourth’). The letter praises members of the community of Ṣova (Aleppo). In particular, the letter is addressed to Jacob he-Ḥaver in the Great Sanhedrin [...] b. Joseph Bet Din. The extant legible text consists only of elaborate praises. Presumably not sent from Aleppo, so must therefore date from a time when Joseph was in Egypt or Palestine, but little is known about him in general. </p>
