ON THE COVER: The Rockefeller Museum, opposite the Old City of Jerusalem. Named for John D. Rockefeller, who financed its construction in the 1930s, the elegant museum displays a dazzling collection of archaeological finds. For over 35 years, it has also housed more than 1,000 Dead Sea Scroll fragments. Access to these fragments is denied to all but a select few scholars. These important documents must be made public—and now. See “Dead Sea Scrolls Scandal—Israel’s Department of Antiquities Joins Conspiracy to Keep Scrolls Secret.”
