Cairo Genizah : Letter

Manṣūr b. Sālim

Cairo Genizah

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Letter from Manṣūr b. Sālim (stepbrother of Elijah the judge) to his son. T-S 10J13.10 and T-S 10J14.12 are letters sent by the same father searching for his son after his son ran away to join the army, but this particular letter does not mention the army. There are, however, familial tensions present, as the father states ‘I have never seen a character or religion like yours and never heard of the like’ and closes his letter with an exhortation ‘return to God and bring your mind back to yourself’.</p>
