The Codex Aleppo is even older than the Codex Leningradensis.
This Codex was written around the year 930, on fine parchment.
It is written by a copyist of the Asher family in a beautiful
regular handwriting. It was preserved for centuries in the
oldest synagogue of Aleppo, Syria. It was kept there, hidden
because of the superstitious apprehension that research workers
would profane the codex. Originally it also contained the
complete Old Testament, written on 760 pages, but after a
fire, in the previous century, approximately one fourth is
lost. Nowadays the manuscript is in Israel. God’s name
is frequently used in the Codex, in the form of the Tetragrammaton.
