Thousand-Year-Old Chumash Goes on the Block—for $30 MILLION


A Chumash known as the Codex Sassoon—the oldest nearly complete volume in the world—will be auctioned this spring by Sotheby’s, which expects it will bring between $30 million and $50 million.

The 1,100-year-old tome in Lashon Kodesh is owned by Jacqui Safra, the Swiss investor from the famous banking family.

Safra, who is reportedly worth $500 million, also owns the Encyclopedia Britannica and a vineyard that filed for bankruptcy last year. Read more at Sotheby’s.
