Matti Friedman - The Aleppo Codex

Wednesday, May 30, 2012 - 7:00pm
The Aleppo Codex is a tenth-century annotated Bible. Hidden for centuries in a synagogue in Syria, it surfaced in Jerusalem in the 1940s. As Friedman tracks down the book’s mysterious journey, including how it came to be missing some of its pages, he gives a vivid history of Jewish communities in ancient Islamic civilizations and raises questions about the ownership of antiquities.
