Cairo Genizah : Liturgy; letter

Cairo Genizah

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Recto: one side of each fragment contains Hebrew liturgical poems. Verso: letter in Judaeo-Arabic *c This classmark unites three fragments, which all have Hebrew liturgical poems on one side, and remainders of letters in Judaeo-Arabic on the other. F. 2 and f. 3 appear to be in the same hand and perhaps from the same letter, whereas f. 1 is written in a different hand. f. 1 mentions ‘my master, the Av (Bet Din)’ , who apparently sailed off to Tripolis, and ‘our master’ Benjamin, ‘our master’ Mevasser and a certain Jacob, and is concerned with payment of wages and other matters. F. 2 mentions the state of a certain Yešuʿa he-Ḥaver and letters sent to a certain Abū l-ʿAlā. F. 3 mentions a donkey sent with a certain Ḥasan b. Moses.</p>
