About the Mikdash Educational Center
The Mikdash Educational Center’s mission is raising the consciousness of the Holy Temple’s integral part of in Jewish religion, history and culture.
After being destroyed almost 2000 years ago the significance of the Temple and the knowledge of the service have gradually been diminished.
The Mikdash Educational Center is committed to educate and rekindle the spiritual and national connection between Jewish people and the Temple and to disseminate experiential Temple education, in Israel and throughout the world.
At our new premises in Jerusalem, we have established a Beit Midrash Mikdash, a Holy Temple Study Center to complement the traditional programs that are implemented in schools, synagogues, and community centers in Israel and throughout the world.
The experienced educational staff is made up of experts in both formal and informal educational with extensive knowledge of the Temple, Bible and Jewish history. This staff is augmented each year with dedicated woman doing their National Service.
Nevertheless, the financial participation of the target groups does not have the ability to fully fund our activities. We have been approached by many financially struggling schools and communities that are not be able to receive this special opportunity because of lack of funds. With your support we seek to expand the base to include those who are not able to afford the programs and to develop new innovative methods of teaching.
We appreciate your consideration and dedication to all the many special causes that you support and hope to be able to benefit from your generosity, to enable us to create new innovative programs in order to make Temple education and experience available to a larger population than we are able to reach today.
Our Research Department has been working to plan all the practical aspects of the building the Third Temple in detail.
The Menorah Project
Since the destruction of the Temple, no “one-piece” Menorah has been built. We are now
able to produce a solid gold Menorah, so that we will be able to “light” the Temple again.
a. A silver cast model
b. Purchase the Solid Gold
c. Modeling The Menorah in a fire furnace
Total budget: $4,000,000
Architectural Plans- Third Temple
Rabbi Menachem Makover, head of the Mikdash Center, studied the prophecy of Ezekiel for over 12 years.
On the basis of his research, and a practical plan for building the The Third Temple can be started.
a) Planning the main Temple structure and the Sanctuary: the Holy and the Holy of Holies.
b) Planning the Women’s Court and the Temple Mount.
The design will include precise specifications of the required materials, quantities,
and charts for the contractor.
Total budget: $700,000
The First Parochet
The Temple Parochet is the curtain with the Cheruvim in front of the Holy of Holies.
We now have the necessary knowledge to weave the Parochet, in terms of both
materials and color assessment.
In practice, the Third Temple building will need seven such curtains, several of which are much larger than those of the Second Temple period.
Work Plan Weaving of the first parochet, the one that distinguishes the Holy from the Holy of Holies, which is 6 by 7 cubits (3 by 3.5 meters)
