Empty 'Jerusalem' Common Case


The typecase configuration matches that currently used by Jerusalem printshops, as supplied by Yehuda Miklaf (Shalom Yehuda Press). It has 63 boxes, and differs from the 1824 Johnson case, which has 40 boxes, and the 1885 MacKellar case, which has 61 boxes. No 'upper' case is needed as the lay is for use without points (vowels), and Hebrew has no capital letters.
