Chapter Summary

As, for centuries, scholars devoted thought and efforts to transform the Scriptures and Rabbinical literature into meaningful sources for nonexperts, it has become truly necessary to start developing systematically a new field of expertise, with its own theory and methods: the teaching and popularization of the Dead Sea Scrolls. Certainly, right from the beginning, the educational dimension of the scrolls was a matter of interest. Inspired by the international conference held at the Israel Museum in 1997, and with the endorsement and support of the Dorot Foundation, the Shrine of the Book started developing formal educational programs for teaching the Dead Sea Scrolls.
