    Went to the Dead Sea Scrolls exhibit at the Franklin Institute Science Museum in Philadelphia yesterday. Everything was presented beautifully and respectfully. Additional artifacts were things dating to the time period of the scrolls, such as jars, coins, a clay bathtub, and the idols and altars some of the people of Israel insisted on using. It also featured an interactive presentation of the ten commandments as written in the scrolls, debris stone from the Temple ruins, and a stone from the Wailing Wall you could touch. They accepted prayers on slips of paper to place alongside, that will be taken to Jerusalem and added to those there. All in all a blessing to see and touch these things. Anyone near Philadelphia should go.

    I saw the exhibit back in May and started a thread in the travel forum.
    See Dead Sea Scrolls found in Philly [LINK]

    The exhibit includes 20 scrolls, 10 at a time.
    And they just recently changed to the second batch.
    If I have the time, I'll head back.
