Temple Mount

We begin our journey at the temple Mount, a place where heaven and earth meet – The holiest historic site sacred to more than half of the world’s population. According to the bible God tested Abraham and asked him to sacrifice his son Isaac at Mount Moriah – this is the inspiration for the collections name. 1000 years later, at this location king David settled Jerusalem as his capital and his son king Solomon built the first temple at 950 BCE. This was also the location of the second temple mount know as Herod’s temple was built and later destroyed by the roman empire at 70 CE. In Christianity the Temple Mount was the site of several important events during the life of Jesus, and in Islam it is where the profit Muhammed took to the night to bring forth the Quran.

Kidron Valley

The story behind this In 1999, when an non-supervised excavation of the Temple Mount on Mount Moriah resulted in dozens of truckloads of the holiest land on Earth to be tossed out as debris into the Kidron Valley. Because of the historical significance, no excavations are allowed without the supervision of the Israel Antiquities Authority.

Tzachi an archaeologist student at the time happened to come across the valley and examined the debris and realized that it could be a treasure trove of information about the temple mount. The significance of the finds led them to establish a project for systematic sifting of the soil.

Augusta Victoria

‘Hamesuot Lookout’ (next to the Augusta Victoria )

The temple mount sifting project was established with the purpose of sifting throughout  this debris – studying and examining as many artifacts as possible form the temple mount. It is managed by Archeologists Prof. Gabrial Barkay and Tzachi Dvira under the auspices or Bar-Ilan University.

The debris is carefully sifted by volunteers from all over the world guided by archeologists . Every historic finding is transferred to the archeological laboratory to provide insight to the history of the temple mount.

Avi Tavisal, a 7th generation Jerusalemite,  heard of the project and was immediately moved and decided he had to become involved in doing whatever he can to keep the history alive. Her has become a major sponsor of the site, every day buckets of these historical stones are transferred to Moriah for the production of the collection.
