<p style='text-align: justify;'>Two legal documents: The first is a deed, dated 1117 CE, in which an unnamed woman gifts part of a house to her housekeeper Sitt al-Dar bat Saul, and the second is a bill of release. The rest of the compound was owned by the Heqdeš, and to keep the property in Jewish hands, Sitt al-Dar is forbidden to sell her inheritance to non-Jews, and future buyers of the property are instructed to continue this policy. It is also stated that Sitt al-Dar will serve and care for the her benefactor, until her benefactor's death. Signed by Isaac b. Ḡalib the cantor, Ḥalfon ha-Kohen b. Joseph, Abraham b. Solomon, Moses b. ʿEli, and Ḥalfon b. Manasseh ha-Levi, who also wrote the documents. A validation follows, signed by Abraham b. Šemaya he-Ḥaver, Isaac b. Samuel the Spaniard, and Abraham b.
