The Jews of the Comtat Venaissin were distinctive for using a liturgy based on the old Provençal rite. This handsome liturgical manuscript from the Provençal rite, incomplete at the beginning and the end, contains a number of interesting piyutim and ends with the alphabetic “Et Mo’ade Adonai” for Shabbat ha-Gadol.
