THE TREASURES OF THE TEMPLE EXHIBITION
Each year, millions of visitors converge on Jerusalem's Old City. Tourists flock from far and wide to walk the ancient streets and soak up the thousands of years of history, culture and religious worship. The tradition of visiting Jerusalem's Old City is almost as old as time itself. Two thousand years ago thousands of pilgrims from across the globe would have made their way to the Holy Temple which was the center of the Jewish world until it was destroyed in 70AD.
Today The Treasures of the Temple Exhibit offers a window into the Holy Temple and its rituals. Situated on Misgav Ladach Street, in Jerusalem's Old City the exhibit showcases more than sixty sacred vessels and priestly garments that were painstakingly recreated by the Temple Institute for use in the Holy Temple in accordance with intricate biblical law. Each vessel is the culmination of years of research and intensive work that brought together rabbis, artisans, craftsmen, engineers and scientists. The recently completed High Priest's robes which includes the gem stone ordained breastplate is now on show. In addition the Temple Institute's half-ton solid gold Menorah is on display overlooking the Western Wall Plaza and provides a taste of some of the incredible Temple treasures to be found in the exhibit.
The Treasures of the Temple Exhibit is open to the public Sunday-Thursday from 9:00 AM till 5:00 PM, and Fridays from 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM.
