Description

Letter fragment in Judaeo-Arabic. Dating: Looks 14th c or later based on the hand, but this is a guess. Written in a high register, with rhymes, biblical quotations, and frequent allusions to light and purity. Most of it seems to consist of praises for the addressee. Possibly a letter of appeal for charity or help. Might mention Hebron (al-Khalīl) a few lines from the bottom. There are a few words in Arabic script at the bottom.
