    English Text:

    The Jews of the Comtat Venaissin were distinctive for using a liturgy based on the old Provençal rite. This liturgical manuscript from the Capentras rite not only covers Rosh haShanah, but also includes “Ashmoret ‘erev ha-tsom” with an introduction and commentary by the copyist Eliyahu Karmi (possibly Crémieux?) and Rabbi Joseph of Monteux. In addition the last five leaves contain Karmi’s commentary titled “Sheyare tohorah.”
