On June 20, 2008, notice was published on page 35189 of the Federal Register (volume 73, number 120) of determinations made by the Department of State pertaining to the exhibit, “The Dead Sea Scrolls.” The referenced notice is corrected as to an additional object to be included in the exhibition. Pursuant to the authority vested in me by the Act of October 19, 1965 (79 Stat. 985; 22 U.S.C. 2459), Executive Order 12047 of March 27, 1978, the Foreign Affairs Reform and Restructuring Act of 1998 (112 Stat. 2681, et seq.; 22 U.S.C. 6501 note, et seq.), Delegation of Authority No. 234 of October 1, 1999, Delegation of Authority No. 236 of October 19, 1999, as amended, and Delegation of Authority No. 257 of April 15, 2003 [68 FR 19875], I hereby determine that the additional object to be included in the exhibition “The Dead Sea Scrolls”, imported from abroad for temporary exhibition within the United States, is of cultural significance.

I also determine that the exhibition or display of the exhibit object at The Jewish Museum, New York, New York, from on or about September 21, 2008, until on or about January 4, 2009, and at possible additional exhibitions or venues yet to be determined, is in the national interest.
