The Jerusalem Crown is a new, revised, and accurate Bible, published in the spring of 2001 as a gesture toward the Aleppo Codex. The edition is based on the latest scholarship concerning the biblical text and on the last version edited by Rabbi Mordechai Breuer, recipient of the 1999 Israel Prize in Bible Scholarship. The Jerusalem Crown has been recognized as the official Bible of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and the Israeli parliament (the Knesset). Since its publication, it has been used to administer the oath of office to new presidents of the State of Israel.
the Companion Volume After completion of the various editions, the Companion Volume, edited by Dr. Mordechai Glatzer, was published. It contains articles dealing with the importance of the Aleppo Codex and the relationship between the Jerusalem Crown and the Codex, by Dr. Yosef Ofer, as well as a description of the production of the book by publisher Nahum Ben-Zvi. The articles are all published in Hebrew and in English translation.
