"The three fragments known as JRL SERIES A 1053, JRL SERIES B 2699, and JRL SERIES B 2977 are from three copies of another invitation, printed in French, to the wedding of Mr. Moise Mosseri (c. 1855-1933) and Miss Henriette Nahmias (1868-1943). The Mosseris were a famous Cairene banking family, which may give a sense of who could afford to have invitations professionally printed in the late nineteenth century. French documents are also rare in the Genizah, but someone – a young Mosseri being the likely culprit – has re-used the back of these invitations to practice the Hebrew alphabet."
