Cairo Genizah : Rabbinics; midraš; chronicle

Cairo Genizah

<p style='text-align: justify;'>The first leaf introduces fast dates, organised by calendrical month, based on the deaths of biblical figures (Miriam, the sons of Aaron, ʿEli ha-Kohen, Samuel), rabbinic figures (Rabban Šimon b. Gamliel, Elisha and Rabbi Ḥananya Sgan ha-Kohanim, Rabbi Ḥananya b. Teradyon) and events (breaking of Two Tablets, halting of the Tamid offering). The second leaf calculates time between various reigning kings (Zedekiah, Pharoah, Saul, Nebuchadnezzar) and the destruction of the Temple. Verso has barely legible “Seder Olam”. This leaf appears to be the last article in Megillat Taʾanit, in Hebrew, found in Halaḵot Gedolot Chapter 18.</p>
