圣殿山考古筛选工程

Mount Moriah, sacred since the time of Abraham is considered to be the epicenter of the world, the site where the Holy temples stood. For nearly two thousand years, those remains were untouched until 1999-2000 when illegal excavations were carried out below the Temple mount without any archaeological supervision, causing severe damage to ancient remains. Some 400 truckloads of earth containing artifacts from all periods in Jerusalem’s history were dumped in the nearby Kidron Valley. 为了抢救这些古老的文物宝藏,以色列自然和国家公园保护局设立了一个由来自世界各地的志愿者组成并运营的筛选中心,这些发掘筛选工作为了解圣殿山的历史提供了卓越的见解。
有一天,在检查这些圣石时,该项目的主要贡献者Avi Tavisal产生一个愿景,作为第七代耶路撒冷人和一名领先的以色列珠宝商,他意识到神圣的灵性就蕴含在这古老的圣石中——和平、良善、智慧、崇高。 于是Avi想到,通过祖先留下的永恒的遗产可以将“圣城耶路撒冷”这些美好精神传递给世界各地的朋友们。 行动起来,让我们一起保护古耶路撒冷和圣殿的历史文化遗产!
