Cairo Genizah

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Ketubba for Turfa bat Nathan the divorcee and Ṣedaqa b. Yefet the cantor. Dated Thursday 17th Tevet 1436 (= 1124 CE) in Fusṭāṭ. The names of witnesses are not preserved. In the hand of Ḥalfon b. Manasseh. The appearance of the ketubba, which is decorated with fleurs de lis on the first line of the heading, is in contrast to the dowry of Turfa, who only has clothing worth 5 dinars, making her one of the poorest women mentioned in the Genizah.</p>
