Cairo Genizah : Letter

Cairo Genizah

<p style='text-align: justify;'>A Hebrew letter by the muqaddam of the community in Minyat Zifta, announcing that he had excommunicated a debtor according to an instruction by the Nagid. The Nagid had previously arranged for the debtor to repay part of what was owed to his creditors, but he reneged on his agreement and an excommunication was about to be enacted against him as per the Nagid’s instructions. The muqaddam, however, asks for a respite of one or two months for the debtor. Mentions ‘our lord R. ʿUzziel [...], meleḵ Minyat Zifta’. Ca. 14th century.</p>
