Cairo Genizah : Letter; liturgy

Šerira b. Ḥananya (Gaʾon)

Cairo Genizah

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Recto: letter from Šerira b. Ḥananya to a correspondent in Fusṭāṭ, complaining about Egypt and the West’s neglect of the Yešiva. Beginning and end are missing, but the letter should be dated to 962 CE, written while Šerira was still Av Bet Din in Pumbeditha. Verso: under the title תרגום אפאטיר, there is a list of parašot and their corresponding hafṭarot, including for special sabbaths and festivals, with Judaeo-Arabic instructions. Written in a slightly clumsy hand with many deletions.</p>
