Cairo Genizah : Letter; halaḵa

Cairo Genizah

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Recto: poetic letter in square script. Each line ends in the rhyme -let and is followed by a dot. Letters are extended to give a (mostly) neat left-hand margin. The final word of the last line is put in the middle of the page. No names preserved, but does address אדוני. Worman states that it was ‘sent by a son of Joshua the Ḥaver to Joshua’s brother’, but there is no trace of this in the fragment now. Verso: collection of halakhic rulings regarding marriage, which continues in the blank space under the letter on recto, overwriting the final word.</p>
