Cairo Genizah : Letter

Daniel b. ʿAzariah (Gaʾon)

Cairo Genizah

<p style='text-align: justify;'><p>Part of a Judaeo-Arabic letter by the Jerusalem Gaʾon Daniel b. ʿAzarya, in his handwriting, and dating from about 1051 CE. He writes a few expression, mainly blessings, in Arabic script (e.g., ר׳ נתן رحمه الله). T-S 16.30 is a larger part of the same letter. The letter is apparently a complaint about Joseph ha-Kohen b. Solomon Gaʾon and his brother Elijah (not mentioned in the extant text), and refers to both the previous Gaʾon, Solomon b. Judah, and the previous Av, Nathan b. Abraham.</p></p>
