Fuming (Randyjw; May 26, 2018)


You know there’s a first-world problem

If the difference you can’t tell

between a pest-infested

arc-sprayed rotunda

and the smell of a

garlicky szechuan

Temple Mount Sifting Project

Temple Mount Sifting Project (Randyjw; May 18, 2018)


The Temple Mount Sifting Project is an important archaeological undertaking to recover artefacts as yet-to-be-unearthed in the 9,000 tons of dirt removed illegally from around Solomon’s Stables by the Muslim Waqf and dumped into the Kidron Valley.


I was fortunate to have been given a ride to the site by one of the founders of the project, Zachi, and to have been able to take part in this very touching facet of Jewish history, associated with one of our most iconic sites and structures bespeaking Jewish ancestry: the Holy Temple. The other of the Project’s founders, Gabi Barkai, is one of my favorite teachers from my archaeological- and tour-guiding courses.


Israel is a small country, and we remain a miraculous improbability in terms of our existence. Yet, by G-d, we do.
