The Cairo Genizah has for the last hundred and twenty years served as an inexhaustible source for understanding Jewish life in the East in the Middle Ages and Early-Modern period. This research is dedicated to the contribution of these documents to our understanding of the social and economic world of the Jews in the countries of the Middle East, and especially Egypt, The Land of Israel and to some extent, Syria in the period beginning in the Sixteenth Century, which saw many changes and a shift from decay to blossoming, followed by another period of decay in the end of the Sixteenth Century leading up to the early Seventeenth Century.

Herein are presented a collection of twenty one essays of Dr. Abraham David, published first over four decades ago in respected research venues. These essays reflect changes and developments that have occurred within the Jewish Mediterranean society in the period mentioned above.
