Projects
We have several ongoing projects within our funding purview.  See the highlights below regarding a few of our activities.
  1. Aleppo
    Aleppo Codex Recovery
    This effort picks up the trail blazed by Matti Friedman in his excellent investigative reporting regarding the missing sections of the Crown of Aleppo. See his bestselling book for details regarding the evidence trail for the missing sections of the Torah. The project applies best of breed analytic relational mapping tools for tracking down the "back market" trade of ancient manuscripts. Due to the sensitive nature of this effort, ongoing status is not provided until the Crown has been secured.
Aleppo Codex Recovery Project

This effort picks up the trail blazed by Matti Friedman in his excellent investigative reporting regarding the missing sections of the Crown of Aleppo. See his bestselling book for details regarding the evidence trail for the missing sections of the Torah. The project applies best of breed analytic relational mapping tools for tracking down the "black market" trade of ancient manuscripts.

Social media plays a big part in this
effort, in addition to on the ground
sleuthing. Out "technology friendlies"
inlcude Palantir, Zeuss, Analyst
Toolkit, and Tibco Spotfire.


Due to the sensitive nature of this effort, detailed aspects of this project are not publicized, but if you have information that you think can help the investigation and recovery, please pass on your tips to aleppo@AncientTextsResearch.org.
Glyph Evolution Project
Join us on our Glyph Evolution Project as we
explore the origins of written communictations.  
We have teamed with the History Channel in a
quest around the globe on a treasure hunt for
the earliest forms of written communications in
an attempt to find its "headwaters".

Our analytic's effort (teamed with the leading language research institutions and specialiists  around the world)  is focused on the classification of glyphs used in ancient manuscripts, and the lineage of those glyphs.  We want to answer the question: "What is the world's oldest alphabet?"  Who invented what has become our modern form of communications?  

One particular crumb trail of this quest is focused on the lineage of the Torah, believed to be the oldest form of  written language.  Will the Torah in its current form actually lead us back to it's original form?  As you can see, this project is intentionally sandwiched between our search for the missing sections of the Aleppo Codex and employment of the STAR systems.
Digital Transcription 
We support the efforts of institutions around the world in 
preservation of our most ancient manuscripts and the
efforts to transcribe them for digital publication.  Notable 
mentions here go to the J. Alan Groves Center in their monumental task of transcribing and publishing the Leningrad Codex.  The Codex has been made completely public via the tanach.us website.  

We applaud the break through efforts of St. Mary's University in San Antonio, Texas in the development of new techniques to "see" handwritten text that have been indecipherable to the naked eye for hundreds of years.

This effort also binds our ties with the Ben-Zvi
Institute of Jerusalem for the publication of a
transcribed digital version of the Aleppo Codex.
