ABOUT THE CENTER

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.

On-Going Projects

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.

Work Plan:

a. A silver cast model

b. Purchase the Solid Gold

c. Modeling The Menorah in a fire furnace

Total budget: $4,000,000

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:

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)
