Hebrew Manuscripts : Yemenite prayer book for the whole year (Tikhlal)

Hebrew Manuscripts

<p style='text-align: justify;'>This Yemenite prayer book for the whole year, known as a tikhlal (תכלאל), was produced in the Bir al-Azab district of Sanaʿa in 1769. The manuscript does not use the term tikhlal but rather mentions sidur gadol ("Great Daily Prayer Book") on its title-page. The liturgical instructions alternate in Hebrew and Judeo-Arabic. The texts of the tikhlal are accompanied by Isaac Wana’s commentary Paʿamon Zahav [ṿe-Rimon] or Golden Bell [and Pomegranate], also known as Ḥidushin. Towards the end the tikhlal contains a Judeo-Arabic section on the calendar and intercalation and one on documents.</p>
