In commemoration of the 50th anniversary of Jerusalem’s Israel Museum, an ongoing new exhibition at the Shrine of the Book (of Dead Sea Scrolls fame) features the world’s smallest bible.

In a cutting-edge display of Israeli hi-tech prowess, the complete text of the bible has been inscribed on a gilt nano-chip approximately the size of a grain of sugar.  A prime display of the power of nanotechnology so proudly produced in Israel, the unique bible was created in the labs of Haifa’s Technion Institute using a one of a kind method of nano stone engraving.  In order to read it, the text needs to be magnified 10,000 times!

Kenes Tours invites you to visit the Israel Museum and the Shrine of the Book in order to see up close the Bible on a journey from its origins to the present-from the 2,000 year old Dead Sea Scrolls to the Nano Bible!

Exhibition on display until April 18th, 2017.
