This is a collection of manuscript fragments from the Moldovan Family Judaica Collection at the University of Pennsylvania Libraries. The first item is a endpaper from a Seliḥot, probably printed, referred to in an inscription; a Yiddish inscription on the recto is undersigned by Uri-Sheraga Feyes b. Elia, and it is a long prayer for blessings and success for the High Holy Days (inscription circa 1770-1800, in Alsatian Yiddish); below is an inscription by Avraham Wormser on Tuesday, parashat Nitsavim 559 (Vendémiaire (September-October) 1799) in Hebrew and then French. On the verso is an inscription by Jakob Wormser in French, Hebrew, and German, signing as a Jewish merchant ("juif negotiant") in Ribeauvillé in the French portion, Rappschwihr in the Hebrew portion, and Rappoltsweiler in German, 1779 (Ribeauvillé is a town today in the Haut-Rhin department in northeastern France, near Strasbourg; the Alsatian name for the town in Rappschwihr, and the German name for the town is Rappoltsweiler); below this is an inscription in German by Lazar Wormser, also in Rappoltsweiler in 1792. The second item is a leaf of a prayer for a yahrzeit, with an addendum for the learning of mishnayot; included is a list of yahrzeits for the scribe, one dated 1824. The third item is three leaves from a commentary on Pirḳe avot, written on commercial paper, probably in North Africa, circa 1920. The fourth item is a signature of Emanuʼel Ḥayim de Milhaud on an endpaper with an impression of the colophon of a manuscript for Rosh ha-Shanah in the Carpentras rite, dated 1650 (chronogram כי את'ה י'י).
