Excerpt from Saadia's Polemic Against Hiwi Al Balkhi, Vol. 5: A Fragment Edited From a Genizah

In the summer of 1914 it was my good fortune to spend a few weeks in that ancient seat of learning which is now the domicile of the greater part of the Cairo Genizah. Through the kind introduction of Dr. Schechter, the authorities of the Cambridge University Library extended to me the rare privilege of examining every part of the Genizah collection, and among the numerous fragments which had remained unclassified until then I discovered the important document presented here for the first time.

It is a great pleasure to have this opportunity of publicly acknowledging my indebtedness to Dr. Schechter for his kindly interest and encourage ment in my work. I further wish to express my thanks to Dr. Francis Jenkinson, the Librarian, and Mr. H. G. Aldis, the Secretary of the University Library, for their courtesy in unreservedly placing before me the entire collection of the Genizah. It is my hope that the publication of this text together with the facsimile will enable others Who work in the same field to discover the rest of this remark able document.
