Are You Ready?

Are you ready for the peace we all long for in the Middle East?

The Third Temple in Jerusalem will be the House of Prayer for all nations. Every prophet of Israel, without exception, prophesied that the Temple would be rebuilt, ushering a new era of universal harmony and peace. The "movement" to rebuild the Holy Temple was born almost 2,000 years ago, at the moment of the Second Temple's Destruction.

OUR SUCCESSFUL CAMPAIGN TO RAISE $100,000 HAS CONCLUDED. If you would like to support the work of the Temple Institute you can make your donation here: https://www.templeinstitute.org/donate.htm

After millennia of yearning, only one organization is paving the way for the rebuilding of the Temple. The Temple Institute (מכון המקדש) located in the Old City of Jerusalem is a research organization dedicated to the preparing for the construction of the Third Temple, including the recreation of 60 sacred Temple vessels ready for use once the Temple is rebuilt. These include the High Priest's breastplate featuring the twelve precious stones of the tribes of Israel, the half-ton golden menorah, and the musical instrument of the Levitical choir.

Now is time for one of its most ambitious projects yet: completing architectural plans for the actual construction, fusing ancient texts and modern technology. While strictly adhering to the religious requirements set forth in Biblical texts, the Third Temple will also be equipped with every modern amenity: full computerization, underground parking, temperature control, elevators, docks for public transportation, wheelchair access, and much more.

It is not enough to wait and pray for the Third Temple. It is a Biblical obligation to build it.

Where Will Your Money Go?

The Temple Institute has engaged an architect to map out the modern Third Temple's construction. Your contribution will go towards completing this ambitious project and the continued research and development which will make the Third Temple a reality.

With every detail of the future Temple's requirements listed in the written and oral law, our architects are not only designers, but Torah scholars who will ensure that everything is built to the highest modern standards, while adhering to the letter of Jewish law. 

Several years ago, the Temple Institute and the architectural firm accompanying this project successfully completed plans for the section of the Temple that will house the Sanhedrin (Lishkat HaGazit - Chamber of Hewn Stone) at the cost of $30,000. Yitzchak Reuven and Rabbi Chaim Richman of the Temple Institute can be seen examining some of these plans here.


A video with 3D architectural renderings of the Chamber can be seen in the gallery section of this campaign, alongside photographs of some of the 60 sacred vessels made for use in the Third Temple.

As in any building project of great proportions, the actual building of the Holy Temple cannot proceed without this stage of preparation. The current campaign target is $100,000 so that the Temple Institute can begin to produce the operative plans for the entire Temple complex. The full cost of these plans is estimated at $300,000. Every dollar donated will enable you to become a part of the future, directly investing in the eventual rebuilding of the Temple.
