The Moriah Jerusalem Stone Museum

The museum tells a unique story, one that combines the history of the people and of the Temple Mount, cultivated by Avi Tavisal, the founder of   IDC and creator of the Moriah Collection. The story behind this Exhibition begins In 1999, when an non-supervised excavation of the Temple Mount on Mount Moriah resulted in the holiest land on Earth to be tossed out as debris. Avi Tavisal, the founder of IDC, a man of faith and 7th-generation Jerusalemite, a diamond jeweler for 50 years, following in his father’s footsteps, became involved in a project that came to be known as the Emek Tzurim Sifting Project and later the Pisgat Hsmesuot , an  effort to sift through this debris or historical artifacts. He could not bear the thought of leaving the stones from the Tempe Mount in a pile of rubble in the Valley and had a vision: He would use these Moriah Stones as his canvas. Through his art, he would retell the stories of creation, faith, history and yearning that are embodied by Mount Moriah, from which these stones were removed. Using only engraving tools, gold, diamonds and gemstones, Tavisal and his skilled craftsmen have created beautiful artwork – including sculptures, jewelry, ceremonial art and other items of expression and beauty to celebrate this holy Earth as never before. All of the stone in this exhibition are from the Temple Mount, the site of Mount Moriah. The Moriah Exhibition is the only one of its kind anywhere in the world.
