The Community Rule

June 4, 2000-Unspecified
Location: Shrine of the Book
Curator: Adolfo Roitman
This copy of the Community Rule from Cave 4 at Qumran was exhibited for the first time in Israel. The fragmentary text is the most complete of all the copies of the scroll discovered in the cave, and it provides rare evidence for the lives of the members of the Dead Sea Sect.
