Hebrew Manuscripts : Maḥzor

Hebrew Manuscripts

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Small-sized maḥzor for Rosh ha-Shanah, possibly of the rite of Corfu. The manuscript includes prayers, piyuṭim, pizmonim, baḳashot and biblical texts for the New Year service, introduced by rubrics in semi-cursive script. The text ends on folio <a dir='auto' href='' onclick='store.loadPage(124);return false;'>60b</a> with a long rubric and the sentence תם ונשלם חלק ימים נוראים. This suggests that the text was once preceded by a section on the Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur), even though the order would seem illogical. The tentative link with Corfu can be made due to the mention of 'Korfu' on the front paste-down by a modern hand.
