About this title


“Acquired by [Elkan Nathan] Adler in Cairo in 1896, this marvelous collection contains an incredible wealth of Rabbinic literature, including manuscripts of the Mishnah and Mishnah commentaries, the Tosefta, the minor tractates, the Jerusalem Talmud and its commentaries, the Babylonian Talmud and its commentaries, Midrashim and Aggadic literature, Homilies (derashot) and Homiletical literature, Halakhic Compositions (Hibburei Halakha), Talmudic methodology, Halakhic controversies, Halakhic dictionaries, Bible commentaries, Responsa, Halakhic documents (Teudot Hilkhatiot), and liturgical texts. The vast majority are in Hebrew, Aramaic, and Judeo-Arabic, though Ladino, Arabic, and Persian language documents also appear.... The core of this impressive volume is its catalog of Rabbinica that is accompanied by twelve facsimile pages of representative documents. The volume opens with an extensive eighty-three page introduction in Hebrew. This essay is invaluable to all who are interested in the history of the Genizah, and has become required reading for my own graduate students.... This exceptional introduction is carefully annotated, and provides a very useful access to the study of the Genizah as a whole. A short sixteen page English summary of the Hebrew introduction is provided.... should be purchased by every research library that collects deeply in classical Judaic Studies.” Prof. Steven Fine, University of Cincinnati
