The 1, remedy 200-year-old prayer book is the oldest in existence today, dated from the ninth century. The book of prayers will be on display for a month at “The Book of Books” exhibition, courtesy of the Green Collection.
According to estimates, the prayer book was written during the time of the Geonim of Babylonia. The book is divided into three chapters, including parts of the daily morning prayer, Jewish liturgical poems and the Haggadah book.
“We are very excited for the arrival of the prayer book to the museum,” said Amanda Weiss, Director at Bible Lands Museum Jerusalem.
“This is a real treasure for the Jewish people, evidence of the community and cultural life 1,200 years ago, and we are honored to have it on display at The Book of Books exhibition.”
