The Dorot Foundation Dead Sea Scrolls Information and Study Center, in Memory of Joy Gottesman Ungerleider

The Dorot Foundation Dead Sea Scrolls Information and Study Center, established in memory of Joy Gottesman Ungerleider, is the newest feature in the Shrine of the Book complex, which also includes the Model of Jerusalem in the Second Temple Period, the Dorot Auditorium, a seminar room, and, of course, the Shrine of the Book itself. Though it is equipped with state-of-the-art technology, the Information and Study Center is essentially equivalent to the ancient scriptorium in which generations of Jewish sages composed and inscribed the nation’s canonical texts.

You are welcome to enjoy the variety of facilities available at the Center: peruse the Scrolls and embark on virtual journeys at the information stands; enrich your knowledge of such topics as the Dead Sea Scrolls, explore artifacts from Qumran, biblical history, and the architecture of the Shrine of the Book at the computer stations; and view films illustrating and documenting these subjects in the screening corner. The Information Center staff is happy to provide visitors with additional information and to assist with questions.
