  The Aleppo Codex, the oldest Hebrew Bible in existence today, is so named because it was housed for half a millennium in Aleppo, Syria. The codex, also known as the Crown of Aleppo, was written by scribes called Masoretes in Tiberias, Israel, around C.E. The Aleppo Codex is considered to be the most authoritative copy of the Hebrew Bible.   The Aleppo Codex, circa CE, is one of the most important books ever written. It was an attempt to codify the entire Hebrew Scripture, with all vowel marks and cantillation marks, as a single standard, since Torahs are written without vowels and they were only known by tradition. Friedman's book runs through two parallel histories.

Book reviews. The Beekeeper of Aleppo Christy Lefteri Review by Melissa Brown. September Like the beehives he tends, Nuri Ibrahim exists at the mercy of forces larger than he.

When war encroaches on him and his wife, Afra, they are forced to leave their lives in Syria behind and become refugees.

Recommended: I highly recommend The Beekeeper of Aleppo for fans of historical fiction, for readers who appreciate stories about survival and inspirational individuals, for those who might have lived in Syria, and possibly for book clubs if the members can handle heavier reads.

My Rating: Stars (rounded to 5 on Goodreads).Nuri is a beekeeper, and Afra, his wife, is an artist. Mornings, Nuri rises early to hear the call to prayer before driving to his hives in the countryside.

On weekends, Afra sells her colorful landscape paintings at the open-air market. They live a simple life, rich in family and friends, in the hills of the beautiful Syrian city of Aleppo until the unthinkable happens.Moving, intimate, and beautifully written, The Beekeeper of Aleppo is a book for our times: a novel that at once reminds us that the most peaceful and ordinary lives can be utterly upended in unimaginable ways and brings a journey in faraway lands close to home, never to be forgotten.
