The Lost Crown

An Israeli filmmaker embarks on a perilous quest to reveal the fate of The Aleppo Codex, A.K.A The Crown, which is considered the most accurate and valuable manuscript of the Hebrew Bible. After being safeguarded for seven centuries by the Jewish community of Aleppo, more than a third of its pages disappeared while smuggled to Israel in 1957. As the filmmaker, a great grandson of the Crown keeper, navigates the dark corridors of hidden history, archival documents and rare testimonies reveal an astonishing story involving an Israeli president, Mossad agents, passionate rabbis, and antique dealers.
