The Temple Mount Sifting Project was created in order to save as many ancient artifacts as possible from thousands of tons of this debris and to conduct archaeological research on the finds in order to cast more light on the history of the Temple Mount: a place of significance to billions of people throughout the world.Anything that happens on the Temple Mount resonates throughout the worldJerusalem is the most excavated city in the world, but no systematic archaeological excavation has ever taken place on the Temple MountThe Sifting Project is as close as anyone has ever come to excavating the Temple Mount itself.Our Finds Casting New Light on this Universally Significant and Hallowed SiteOver 200,000 volunteers from all facets of society, both Israelis and foreigners, have taken part in sifting earth from the Temple Mount.
