A Full Color Facsimile Edition

This book includes descriptions of fifty fragments of responsa from the Ottoman Empire sages (16th-19th) found in the Elkan Nathan Adler Cairo Genizah Collection at the JTS Library. The responsa reveal new matters, which not been dealt in the past either in halakha, or in Talmudic exegesis. These responsa offer fertile ground for research in all manner of disciplines, from the interpretation of Jewish Law to the wider social, cultural and legal history of the Jewish Communities of the Mediterranean and Near East.
