Description

Lists in Judaeo-Arabic and Hebrew of donations collected before various Shabbatot dated in the year 5596 which is 1835/1836CE. Each list is designated by specific weeks of the liturgical calender indicated by each respective parsha reading. On the right page of the recto there are many surnames listed with corresponding monetary amounts in Ottoman silver kuruş, which is indicated by the "ق" at the top of each column in eastern Arabic numerals. Among the surnames listed, there is mention of: ʿAkubas, Romano, Kohen, Karo, Yaʿabeṣ, ʿAfif, Lombrozo, and many others. On the left side of the recto, the purpose of various entries is more clear with the common phrase "וצל" and then a surname– which is likely indicating incoming payments. The same bookkeeping format continues on the verso. MCD.
