The Aleppo Codex, the oldest known manuscript of the Bible, was the crown of Syria’s Jewish community for seven centuries. But after riots set fire to the synagogue where it lived, the city’s Jews decided to smuggle the Codex to safety in Israel. En route, a third of the book’s pages mysteriously disappeared. Were they simply lost in the fire or is there a more sordid history?

Filmmaker Avi Dabach meets the people obsessed with this affair—from a best-selling author to an elderly Mossad agent, to find out and uncovers a web involving antique dealers, wealthy collectors and corrupt officials.

Followed by a conversation with producer Judith Manassen Ramon and Dr. Yael Berda.
