Certifying a marriage following the rules of the Ashkenaz community in Sofia, signed by the Chief Rabbi of Bulgaria, R. Gabriel Almosnino. The Almosninos are a distinguished Sephardi family, originating in Spain and prominent later in Morocco, Salonika, Gibraltar, and England. The family was established from the 13th century at Jaca in Aragon, where Barzillai Almosnino was baile in 1277 and Joseph and Jacob (possibly his sons) were "adelantados" of the Jewish community in 1285 (Regne, Cat, nos. 1277, 1370).
