A clear, neat copy of the Yemenite mahzor for all the Jewish feasts and fasts. The manuscript begins with the text of the prayers for the three pilgrimage festivals, Passover, Shavuot, and Sukkot (including Hoshana Rabbah, Shemini Atseret, and Simhat Torah) (ff. 1r-44v); continues with the services for the fast of Tish‘ah be-Av, including the entire text of Lamentations (ff. 45r-78v); and concludes with the liturgy for the season of repentance surrounding Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur (ff. 79r-157r), with the relevant selihot (penitential prayers) appended at the end (ff. 157r-203v). Also included are various piyyutim (liturgical poems), including two by Rabbi Solomon ibn Gabirol (ca. 1021-ca. 1057; see ff. 21v-23v, 138r-143v). The box binding in which the text is housed is remarkably well preserved and adds to the beauty of this mahzor.
