Cairo Genizah : Letter

Cairo Genizah

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Recto: poetic letter with an acrostic spelling ‘Ḥalfon ben Mevoraḵ (מבוכר), Saʿadya ha-Mumḥe’. Evidently a line is in the wrong sequence in the poem, which should have given the acrostic מבורכ, i.e. Mevoraḵ. Written in inverted letters are 5 lines of a poem that was the original text on the page. Verso: two poems, one written inverted. One poem has an acrostic Mevasser (מבסר) ben Mevoraḵ Saʿadya. </p>
