Prof. Moshe Bar-Asher, President of the Academy of the Hebrew Language, convened the eighth symposium. The lectures were held in the Academy of the Hebrew Language on the Edmond Safra Campus of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, with the exception of two sessions, which were held at the Israel Academy of Sciences and Humanities. In addition to the generous support of the Israel Science Foundation (grant no. 2362/16, in conjunction with the research project of Prof. Noam Mizrahi, at the time from Tel Aviv University, grant no. 732/12: “Hearing the Angels Sing: A New Commentary on the Songs of the Sabbath Sacrifice”) and the Academy of the Hebrew Language, substantial funding was provided by the Israel Academy of Sciences and Humanities and the Authority for Research and Development of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Dr. Alexey Yuditsky, a researcher at the Academy of Hebrew Language, and Ms. Tzipi Senderov, at the time responsible for public relations at the Academy of Hebrew Language, labored long and hard in the successful organization of the symposium.

Funding Information:
The papers in this volume were presented June 26–30, 2016 at a research workshop “New Aspects of the Texts and Languages of the Dead Sea Scrolls,” which was sponsored by the Israel Science Foundation together with the Academy of the Hebrew Language, Tel Aviv University, and the Eliezer Ben-Yehuda Center for the Study of the History of the Hebrew Language at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. The conference was an eighth international symposium on the Hebrew of the Dead Sea Scrolls and Ben Sira. The idea of a symposium devoted to the language of the Hebrew Dead Sea Scrolls and Ben Sira was conceived by Prof. Takamitsu Muraoka, who hosted the first two meetings in Leiden (1995 and 1997), which were followed by symposia in Beer Sheva (1999), Strasbourg (2006 and 2014), Jerusalem (2008), and Leuven (2011).
