The Cairo Geniza is the younger sibling of the Dead Sea Scrolls archive. This modest catalog, published in 1984 for the Geniza’s exhibition in the Shrine of the Book at the israel museum (currator: Magen Broshi), holds a dozen representing pages from the Geniza- excerpts from the Hebrew bible, external literature (the book of Ben Sirach), Talmudic literature, liturgical hymn and even from manuscripts of Yehuda Halevi and Harambam. This diversity allows a rare peek into the history of the Hebrew script in the middle ages.
