Amanda Weiss, executive director of the museum, expressed her excitement for the unveiling, calling the siddur a “real treasure”: “We are honored to provide our visitors the privilege to see in person the ancient prayer book during the final month of the exhibition.”

Also on display were fragments from the Cairo Geniza and original pages from the Gutenberg Bible.
