A rotation of scrolls in Minnesota

A ROTATION OF SCROLLS at the Dead Sea Scrolls exhibition in Minnesota:
New set of Dead Sea Scrolls comes to Science Museum

A new set of the 2,000-year-old Dead Sea Scrolls will be displayed Wednesday at the Science Museum of Minnesota.

The exhibit -- which opened in March and runs through Oct. 24 -- will have three different sets of five scrolls rotated in during the run, because of their "fragile nature and sensitivity to light and humidity." The five scrolls that opened the exhibit will be carefully shipped back to Israel.

Two of the five scrolls coming online tomorrow have never before been taken out of Israel.

Irritatingly, the article does not say which five scrolls are coming in.
