On the day of the Aleppo Pogrom, December 1, 1947, Shmuel Sabag collected a scrap of parchment from the pages of the codex. Placed in his wallet, it served as an amulet until his last day. In 2003 his family donated this precious fragment to the Ben-Zvi Institute, and it is now on display at the Museum.
