Amazing News from the TMSP!

Dear Friends,

We are overwhelmed by the positive response to our Annual Appeal and we want to say “Thank You.” We will still be able to receive donations on our site at half-shekel.org. You can always donate for the cool gifts, in honor of a friend, or just because you have too much change burning a hole in your pocket, but this marks the end of the emails. Everyone rejoice!

staff-join-usSo here’s the breakdown. We had 67 donors give us over $18,000. Over 45 of those were people who had never before given to the project and were newly joining our TMSP family.

Our goal was to raise enough funds to cover the costs of the core research needed to keep our publication on track for 2018. We raised 36% of that goal which is a great way to start the new year.

Because of the Annual Appeal, we can now cover the costs of:

52 weeks of pottery analysis,

the analysis of 100 ancient coins,

30 weeks of drawing of special finds,

                           AND

30 weeks of the analysis of stone vessels and tools!

We cannot express what this means to us. As the world media increases their focus on Israel, Jerusalem, and Temple Denial, your support of our research lets us know that you stand with us. Just during the campaign, claims of Temple Denial went viral and Dr. Barkay was almost evicted from the Temple Mount for using the term “Temple Mount.” Yet equally, we received scores of emails and messages from people showing their support for our project and telling us that we should be proud of our accomplishments.

We sincerely thank all of you who have supported us over the years and who have given to support our research in this year’s Annual Appeal. We are more dedicated than ever to publishing our research on the archaeological history of the Temple Mount and sharing those truths with the scientific community and the public. Thank you for being part of our TMSP family and helping us reach our goals.

May 2017 bring the true history of the Temple Mount to light.

Thank you,

The Staff of the Temple Mount Sifting Project

Hey everyone!

After a quick trip to the States, I am back and so excited about our Webinar today! Our director, Zachi Dvira, who has been intensively studying the Temple Mount for the past 18 years, will be talking about the history of the Temple Mount using archaeological finds found on the Temple Mount and in Jerusalem. Learn the real history and learn how to respond to the Temple Denial Movement. You will also get a chance to ask questions and discuss these topics with Zachi. This is truly a unique opportunity.

The Webinar will take place at 2PM EST (New York), 9PM in Israel. All donors from our Annual Appeal on half-shekel.org will get special access to this event, but if you miss it, we will email you a special link to the recording of the Webinar so that you don’t miss out.

There are still a couple of hours left to sign up, so make sure that you do! Tell your friends too so that you have someone to discuss this with after the Webinar. Go to half-shekel.org to make your donation and get your access code now.

NOTE: Instructions on how to access the Webinar will be sent to your email. Make sure that we don’t end up in your junk mail!
