orion Aleppo Codex
>Ernst Wuerthwein, in The Text of the Old Testament, lists some Geniza
>fragments from the Old Cairo Synagogue, the earliest of which may go back to
>the 5th century CE, and two manuscripts from the Ben Asher family: Codex
>Cairensis (written and pointed in 895 by Moshe ben Asher) and the Aleppo
>Codex from the tenth century. Wuerthwein notes that the latter may have
>been destroyed by fire, but apparently it was only dammaged and is currently

Please pardon my lapse in memory, but isn't there a critical edition of the
Aleppo Codex being made? Does anyone know when that will be completed?
