Description
Collection of manuscript leaves removed from the "Binding Geniza", remnants of an ancient siddur used by Anusim.
Dozens of sections from a prayer book, translated into ancient Spanish, apparently Castilian, copied by Anusim after the Expulsion from Spain (1492) and Portugal (1496). Written in one of the early places where the expelled Jews scattered during the first half of the 16th century, before the Anusim communities settled and became established in the Protestant cities (Hamburg, Amsterdam etc.).
These are sections of the daily prayers. See examples in attached material.
More than 100 written pages. 15 cm. Poor condition. Varied damages caused by binding. Enclosed: a few additional leaves from the same binding
Written according to the attached article stating the opinion of Prof. Shlomo Zucker of the Manuscript Department of the National Israel Library. We did not examine the manuscript thoroughly.
