From an instructive Maḥazor, as the prayer texts appear in short, narrated by detailed instructions for the synagogue service. Piyyut supplements are mentioned, such as the Maʻariv [ליל אומץ [לזרע תמימים.
The fragment is from the Evening service, including the rites for Passover Eve on Sabbath, some of which are uncommon.
After the ʻAmidah, the leader is instructed וירד מן הבמה ויאמר של שבת, followed by Kiddush, where he is instructed וישתה וישקה נער, Mishnah Sabbath chapter II, to the end of the service: וילכו לבתיהם.
There is no mention of Hallel. The next paragraph is the Evening Service for Passover Eve if it is the night after Sabbath. The service starts with preliminary Psalms CV and CXXXV (only the latter appears in the common Erets Israel rite, see E. Fleischer, Tefillah u-minhage tefillah Erets-Yiśreʾeliyim, 1988, p. 167), supplementary piyyutim are mentioned. The complete text of the special Havdalah supplement in the fourth blessing of the ʻAmidah. Afterwards the leader is instructed ויעלה לבמה for the recitation of Hallel, followed by the complete text of the synagogue Havdalah.
