According with this article, Midrash Chad Shenati was discovered in the Cairo Genizah almost a century ago. It is an early medieval midrashic collection most likely of eastern provenance, dating from the late tenth/early eleventh century.

Does anybody know any additional information about this? Is there any discussion as to its validity or its use in other sources in ancient/modern times? It was already published? Is this Midrash available online somewhere?

  • It was already published? Are you asking whether it has been published? something else? – mevaqesh Dec 2 '16 at 1:18
  • Is there any discussion as to its validity Most question regarding the validity of Midrashim focus on their date pf authorship; it looks like you have already dated it. | Medieval midrashic works of unknown authors, rarely have practical ramifications, so I am not sure what sort of "validity" you seek to investigate. – mevaqesh Dec 2 '16 at 1:20
  • Interestingly, some google searches for the Midrash yield just that single page that you linked. Consider contacting the authors of the piece. – mevaqesh Dec 2 '16 at 1:25
  • @mevaqesh, regarding your 1st question, exactly. The 2nd one, "its validity" in the sense of incorporating it on the rest of the known midrashim we have. But I'll follow your advice, I'll contact the authors for further information on this. – Renato Grun Dec 2 '16 at 1:50
