AMRAM (late 14th century), nagid of the Jewish communities in Egypt. Amram is mentioned as nagid in a document of 1377 and in a letter written in 1380, probably by Joseph b. Eliezer Tov Elem of Jerusalem. The name Amram, appearing without the epithet nagid in a partially preserved document dated 1384, may refer to him. His name also appears in a Hebrew   letter which states that rumors of the exodus of the Ten Tribes have spread through Italy, and emissaries have been sent to the East to check their veracity. -BIBLIOGRAPHY: Ashtor, Toledot, 2 (1951), 21–26; Assaf, in: Zion, 6 (1940/41), 113–8. (Eliyahu Ashtor)
