Review of: Sifting Activity
It's an awesome opportunity to really live the past and expand our knowledge of Jerusalem. However - One must understand how this project came to be. It is there because of the Islamic authorities intentionally and negligently digging and throwing away this dirt and debris.

I agree. Here's where we have a chance though to salvage an incredible number of heritage items from out of the immense damage that was done. And who knows what else is hidden in the Temple Mount Soil? The sifting project gives us the first ever chance to really research its hidden secrets. It really is a unique and exciting opportunity.

Review of: Sifting Activity
It was fun to find items and to realize that there is so much incredible ancient relics in the ground that was dumped out of the area of the former holy temple in Jerusalem.

Glad you had fun! The Temple Mount sifting project is in a great location and the sifting lets you directly touch ancient artifacts. Come again!

Our group found artifacts from 3,000 years ago, hundreds of years ago, and even some recent stuff. Yuval, our archaeologist, was knowledgeable and helpful. Easy for kids and adults. High recommended!

Review of: Sifting Activity
everyone loved it. Highly recommended. Still reeling over the idea that we were handling objects which may have been used in the Beis Hamigdash. I found a Roman coin – really cool and I would love to do it again. Great for families.

Review of: Sifting Activity
This was such fun! We just wanted to keep on and would have done it all day. Who knew that sifting through broken shards of clay pots, bones, rocks could be such fun. Hunting for the elusive treasure!
