The Dead Sea Scroll with theĀ Aseres Hadibros is just one of 14 priceless objects being featured in The Israel Museum,

The exhibition called “A Brief History of Humankind” that began May 1, 2015 will be running through January 2, 2016.

TheĀ Aseres Hadibros manuscript, being 2,000 years old, is very brittle, so will only be displayed for public viewing for a period of two weeks. It will then be returned to the safety of its pitch-black, climate-controlled facility.

The museum is featuring the exhibit to mark its 50 th anniversary. Founded in 1965, it is the largest cultural institution in the state of Israel and is ranked among the world’s leading art and archeology museums.
