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 world Jerusalem is the most excavated city in the world, but no systematic archaeological excavation has ever taken place on the Temple Mount The 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 Site Over 200,000 volunteers from all facets of society, both Israelis and foreigners, have taken part in sifting earth from the Temple Mount. This tedious task could not have been done without the help of a large number of people. This phenomenon of such a large number of participants has no precedent in the history of archaeological research. For your servants have cherished her stones, and have redeemed her dust (psalms 102: 14-15) The Dirt of the Temple Mount is in Your Hands. Join the Sifting.
