The exhibition Dead Sea Scrolls: Life and Faith in Ancient Times opened recently and will be in Cincinnati through mid-April. Dr. Risa Levitt Kohn, co-curator of this exhibition and professor of Hebrew Bible and Judaism at San Diego State University, recently sat down with Mark Perzel to discuss the importance of the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls, what visitors can expect to see when they visit, and the extreme care that is taken to preserve these artifacts.
