Chapter Summary

This appendix of the book presents reference works and translations relevant to Benjamin of Tudela on the Jewish Presence in Northern Arabia. While the Jews of northern Arabia sometimes fought each other (e.g., the battle of Buʿāth), they also helped to redeem Jewish captives from other Jewish tribes. The theory that Jews were exiled to the Ḥijāz as a result of the Assyrian conquest has some Biblical support. The book of Isaiah contains references to the wanderings of the ten tribes in Arabia. The book specifically mentions Dedan and Teima, settlements in northern Arabia.

Keywords: Assyrian; Benjamin of Tudela; book of Isaiah; Jewish; Northern Arabia
