Chapter Summary

In the introduction to the Genizah Manuscripts of Palestinian Targum to the Pentateuch, the author states that in spite of the many efforts exerted to make that collection as complete as possible, new manuscripts would inevitably be discovered, as the Genizah collections throughout the world continued to be sifted by scholars. The significance of this growth lies not merely in the increase in size of the corpus, and the increment of literary and linguistic data that became available. The new material sheds important light on the nature of the previously known manuscripts. Bilingual targumic manuscripts of the Aramaic Onqelos intertwined with the Judeo-Arabic translation of Sa‘adia Ga’on are very common. Now the combination of an expansive Palestinian Targum and a Judeo-Arabic version that is similar to, but not identical with, the known translation of Sa‘adia has been identified.

Keywords: Genizah; Palestinian Targum; Pentateuch; targumic manuscripts
