aleppo codex - oldest and most complete hebrew bible

the Aleppo Codex is
seen as the most authoritative source document for both the original biblical text and its vocalization

it is the most complete, extant, copy of the masoretic text (MT), but many of its pages are lost.
The Masoretic Text (MT) is the authoritative Hebrew text of the Jewish Bible regarded almost universally as the official version of the Tanakh.

read the aleppo codex online

the aleppo codex in buyable book form is called the Keter Yerushalayim (jerusalem crown)

i would really like to find a hebrew english version of this.

note: bible in this context is not the same as the christian bible. the jewish bible is comparable to the christian term old testament
