The Aleppo Codex

B”H
So far, I haven’t done it due to my hesitation. Nevertheless, maybe I should buy Matti Friedman’s book THE ALEPPO CODEX. ๐Ÿ™‚
The Aleppo Codex has an extremely interesting history and only the name Aleppo reminds me of how history is being destroyed at the moment: By the Syrian army, ISIS, Russia and who knows who.
Those of you who are interested in the history of the Aleppo Codex:

I find it pretty strange that various Christian groups see a certain kind of conspiracy or supernatural secret in the Codex. Why does it always have to be a conspiracy or a secret? Maybe I am far too rational for such theories. ๐Ÿ™‚
