Hebrew Manuscripts

<p style='text-align: justify;'>This manuscript contains the third part of the Hebrew Bible known as Writings (Ketuvim) with numerous marginal glosses in Hebrew and Judeo-Persian. It was copied by Jacob ben Obadiah ben Joseph ben Ezra in the school of Rabbi Mordechai in Kashan in Iran at the request of Rav Samuel ha-Levi. He completed his copy on Tuesday 2 July 1495. The order in which the Bible books appear is as follows: Psalms (folios <a dir='auto' href='' onclick='store.loadPage(8);return false;'>1b-72b</a>), Proverbs (folios <a dir='auto' href='' onclick='store.loadPage(151);return false;'>73a-101b</a>), Ruth (folios <a dir='auto' href='' onclick='store.loadPage(210);return false;'>102b-105b</a>), Song of Songs (folios <a dir='auto' href='' onclick='store.loadPage(216);return false;'>105b-109b</a>), Ecclesiastes (folios <a dir='auto' href='' onclick='store.loadPage(224);return false;'>109b-117a</a>), Lamentations (folios <a dir='auto' href='' onclick='store.loadPage(240);return false;'>117b-121b</a>), Esther (folios <a dir='auto' href='' onclick='store.loadPage(250);return false;'>122b-131a</a>), Daniel (folios <a dir='auto' href='' onclick='store.loadPage(268);return false;'>131b-150a</a>), Ezra (folios <a dir='auto' href='' onclick='store.loadPage(306);return false;'>150b-161b</a>), Nehemiah (folios <a dir='auto' href='' onclick='store.loadPage(327);return false;'>161b-179a</a>), Job (folios <a dir='auto' href='' onclick='store.loadPage(363);return false;'>179a-209b</a>), 1 and 2 Chronicles (folios <a dir='auto' href='' onclick='store.loadPage(224);return false;'>209b-290b</a>).
