Hebrew and Judeo-Arabic. Hebrew Oriental semi-cursive vocalization (Tiberian).
Not: Halper 206; Halper 206 is one of the thirty fragments that David Werner Amram donated to the University of Pennsylvania (Halper 1924:98, n. 206, with siglum [U. P.]); this fragment is in CAJS Box 3, following Halper 205; Halper 206 is housed in UP Box, transferred to CAJS from VP/Lea on 02032004 [SJ].
Fully vocalized; text begins on 1v.
Under the Judeo-Arabic heading בשרח, the beginning of a prayer that appears to be the format, and style of the weekly Maʹamadot prayers (Igrot ShadaL / Samuel Davide Luzzatto, Cracow 1891, p. 884-888). This genre is also the basis for Saʻadia's first Bakashah (Sidur Rav Seʾadyah Gaʹon / Israel Davidson [ed.]. Jerusalem : Meḳitse nirdamim, 1963, p.47-63).
These start with the same phrase אתה הוא יי׳ לבדך, as does the beginning of the prayer in fol. 1 here. Fol. 1 contains general praise of God, which is characteristic of the format of the Sunday Maʻamad.
Fol. 2 deals with the formation of creatures from the sea, which is characteristic of Thursday's Maʹamad.
