Chapter Summary

The most extensively preserved manuscript of Palestinian Targum to the Pentateuch is MS E. The largest portion of its extant text, comprised of 12 complete leaves was brought together and published by P. Kahle in Masoreten des Westens II. These consisted of fragments from the Genizah collections of the Bodleian Library in Oxford, Cambridge University Library and the Saltykov-Shchedrin State Public Library in Leningrad. Twenty-five years later, A. Dez Macho discovered four additional leaves of the same manuscript at the library of the Jewish Theological Seminary in New York. This chapter presents several new fragments, discovered in the course of preparing a descriptive catalogue of targum manuscripts in the Cambridge Genizah collections.
