"The Lost Crown" — NEW YORK PREMIERE

The Aleppo Codex, aka The Crown, is considered the most accurate and valuable edition of the Hebrew Bible. After being safeguarded for seven centuries by the Syrian Sephardic community of Aleppo, more than a third of its pages disappeared when it was smuggled to Israel in 1957. Avi Dabach, the filmmaker and great-grandson of the Crown Keeper, navigates the dark corridors of hidden history, archival documents and rare testimonies to reveal an astonishing story involving an Israeli president, Mossad agents, passionate rabbis and antique dealers.
