Yefet (known as Bar ʿAdī), is appointed guardian for the orphans of Moses ha-Kohen b. Ḡulayb, who had recently died without making a will, two of whom, a son called Ḡulayb (a future son-in-law of Ephraim b. Šemarya) and a daughter called Mūlk, are already of age, as was established by the late Elḥanan ‘Head of the Row’, while another son, called Mufarraj, is only four years old.
