Description

Qaraite deed of betrothal. Fiance: Jābir b. Azhar. Fiancee: Ḥusn bt. Ḥayyim b. Sahlawayh. The witnesses to the appointing of the bride’s agent - probably her father - were Elʿazar b. Menashshe and Natan b. […]. The groom is mistakenly referred to as Azhar b. Jābir at one point in the text. The date is lost but the bride’s father and grandfather are known from other documents from the early-to-mid 11th century, suggesting a date of ca. 1030s–1040s CE for this betrothal. The groom may be the same individual referred to in T-S 13J26.2, where he is described as a merchants’ representative in Tinnis. On verso there is a commentary on the creation of Adam and the notion of shame (possibly on Genesis 2:25), followed by a didactic teaching on ḥiddushim (innovative interpretations) and yediʿa (knowledge). (Information mainly from CUDL.)
