Book of Books Exhibit To Display Rare Manuscripts


The Book of Books Exhibition will display rare Biblical manuscripts for the next several months in Jerusalem. Over 200 texts will be shown including Jewish texts found in the Cairo Geniza. The showing began this week and will last until May.

Amanda Weiss, Director of the Bible Lands Museum Jerusalem where the exhibition is taking place called it "the rarest of glimpses into the historicity and transition of the Bible in the heart of the Biblical landscape. The exhibition will be a unique experience to be so close to some of the rarest and most historic texts which helped shape humanity.”
