Title

MS 1037, Deuteronomy 14:4 to 15:7

Description

MS 1037 originates from the same Torah scroll as MS 1036. The manuscript consists of three columns of text from Deuteronomy 14:4 to 15:7. Its narrative details parts of Moses's exhortation to the Jewish people in the fortieth year in the desert to follow God's ways and to choose good over evil.
The scroll is written in an Eastern European hand that is a blend of "Ketav Bet Yosef" and "Arizal." Text columns are formatted to contain 60 lines of text but do not follow an Amudei Vav format. The parchment is found to be in good condition despite its age. However, it is very dirty and soiled. The ink has lost its original blackness and degraded to a brownish red.
