Chapter Summary

This index of the book Poetry and Memory in Karaite Prayer: The Liturgical Poetry of the Karaite Poet Moses ben Abraham Darʿī presents a list of names and concepts relevant to the discussion on Karaite liturgical poetry before Aaron ben Joseph. The book shows that professional cantors (ḥazzānīm) recited Moses Darʿī liturgical poems on the pārāshōt in the synagogue during Sabbath eve prayers, that is, on Friday nights. Yet later Karaite poetry, including Aaron ben Joseph's poems on the pārāshōt, was composed for the Sabbath morning service and was recited immediately before the Torah reading.

Keywords: Aaron ben Joseph; Karaite liturgical poetry; Moses ben Abraham Darʿī
