Abstract In his last book, Biblical Text in the Jerusalem Crown Edition and its Sources in the Masora and Manuscripts (Jerusalem 2003; Hebrew) the late Rabbi Mordechai Breuer rounded off his long-term project of determining the Masoretic text of the Hebrew Bible. He had already published no less than three editions of the Masoretic Bible, and here he spelled out line by line the considerations in each of his textual decisions about the consonantal text of the Bible, particularly in the preparation of the 2000 edition, Jerusalem Crown: The Bible of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. A detailed review of the book illuminates Breuer's method—careful attention both to the manuscripts and to the tradition of Masoretic notes—as well as the special place the Aleppo Codex of the Bible, the "Crown," held in his view.
