The Hebrew University Bible Project (HUBP) is a project to create the first edition of the Hebrew Bible that reproduces the text of the Aleppo Codex and includes a thorough critical apparatus.[1][2]

It was begun in 1956 by Moshe Goshen-Gottstein, assisted by Chaim Rabin (who succeeded him as editor-in-chief) and Shemaryahu Talmon (who succeeded him).

The text reproduced in this edition is the Aleppo Codex; the full masora in that manuscript is included, but not massora from other sources. Footnotes record textual variants from a wide range of sources. These include:

The editors add comments in English and Hebrew.

So far, the books of Isaiah, Jeremiah and Ezekiel have been published.
