Scheduled to open on May 19th at the Museum of Science, the Dead Sea Scrolls Exhibit is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the public to experience firsthand the traditions, beliefs and extraordinary and priceless objects of ancient Israel. The exhibition, created by the Israel Antiquities Authority, includes fragments from 20 of the Dead Sea Scrolls and more than 600 artifacts, including a 3-ton stone from Jerusalem’s Western Wall, where visitors are encouraged to leave a note to be sent to Israel. Most of the fragments of the Dead Sea Scrolls that have been discovered were found in caves in the area of Qumran, near the northwest corner of the Dead Sea.
