A Campaign for Publishing the TMSP to the World

Silver half-shekel coin with tripe-pomegranate cluster motive

Dear Friends,

This video is about a story that is relevant to each one of you. It is a story of universal significance. It is the story of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, of antiquities buried in soil, and the unique archaeological project for sifting this soil, once dumped so unceremoniously outside its gated walls.

This story is not about politics or religion. It is a simple and fundamental thing about our ability to understand our heritage and the history of one of the most important sites in the western world. Here, fateful and magnificent events took place, changing forever the Jewish nation and having impact on the very formation of western civilization. Indeed, what happened here can be said to have affected the whole of human history.
We cannot let these priceless archaeological finds be overlooked or forgotten!

Please watch this video, which is available in 17 languages, and visit our website, half-shekel.org. If you think this project is of importance, please help us distribute this message all over the globe by sharing this video and website.

Thank you.

Zachi Dvira,
Co-Director Archaeologist,
Temple Mount Sifting Project

    We were very proud to have Dr. Barkay visit our small town of Pikeville, Kentucky last spring and more proud that our community could make a financial contribution to preserving the history of the Temple Mount. Reviewing this video reminds me of how we are now part of this amazing project because we were willing to “invest” in the history of the Temple Mount. I would encourage everyone to invest in this project and know you had a part to play in the history of the Temple Mount – and that’s something to be proud of.
