Speaking Engagements in Our Upcoming tour to the U.S.A.


We would appreciate it very much if any of you could mediate us with communities in the U.S. that would like to invite us to speak about our the Temple Mount Sifting Project in our upcoming tour to the U.S. You may use the information below:

Archaeologists Dr. Gabriel Barkay and Zachi Dvira and other members of the Temple Mount Sifting Project in Jerusalem will be in the United States from mid-April until late-May updating groups on recent developments at the project and research of its finds. This project involves the sifting of 400 truckloads of soil saturated with archaeological artifacts from all periods in the history of Jerusalem which were removed from the Temple Mount and dumped in the nearby Kidron Valley in 1999. The finds that were gathered in the past ten years of sifting are the first ever archaeological data that has come from within the Temple Mount soil.   Click here for a short video about our project.

After working for over ten years to reveal the archeological secrets which were buried in the Temple Mount soil, we are at a critical stage of research and publication of hundreds of thousands of artifacts that have been uncovered.  The analysis and preparation of these finds for publication is an enormous task that requires diligence and the expertise of many scholars. Our goal is to publish a formal archaeological report on the Temple Mount finds, through which we will share our new understandings with the world.  Currently, we are lacking funds to complete this task.

We are currently arranging speaking engagements with interested individuals and potential donors at Community Centers in your area.  If you would be interested in this, please contact us at tmsifting@gmail.com.

Searching for Volunteers to Translate text into Variety of Languages

Leave a comment

We are searching for volunteers for translating English text into a variety of language, for a new crowd funding website. Its about 4000 words.
More languages the website will be available in, the wider international awareness to the project and the significance of the Temple Mount antiquities will be spread.
Volunteers may contact us at tmsifting@gmail.com

Upcoming US Tour


Gabriel Barkay, Zachi Dvira, Aran Yardeni and Frankie Snyder will be conducting a fund raising tour to the US during mid-April until late May.

We would appreciate it if any of our supporters could help arrange talks or dinners with potential donors. We will be updating groups on recent developments at the Sifting Project and research of the finds, including reporting on some fascinating discoveries that have not been published yet as they await further research to provide firmer conclusions. We could be contacted at tmsifting@gmail.com.

The research currently needs funding to prepare a full scientific publication of hundreds of thousands of finds. We also plan to go online in a crowd-funding campaign. We would appreciate any support you can give.

If you have not subscribed to our Facebook page, so please do so and share it with others.

More updates to come.

Please view this video which is part of the documentary recently broadcast on BBC that spoke about the Sifting Project’s contribution to research concerning the lost Ark of the Covenant.
