God's Holy Mountain
A vision for the Temple Mount (Al Haram Al Sharif)
A study project of the Interfaith Encounter Association

The world holds dark assumptions that fervent dreams by different faiths for the Temple Mount (الحرم الشريف) must lead to conflict.

We pretend that these dreams no longer matter, but past regional peace initiatives have fallen apart in disputes about the Temple Mount.

Join us in unveiling the prophetic calling of God’s Holy Mountain through close religious study, and in seeing:

The Temple Mount is not a problem but the place for Jew, Muslim, and Christian to fulfill Zechariah’s prophecy: “On that day, God will be one and His name one.”

About us Back to Home

This vision has been developed and funded by observant Jews. The halachic research that shaped this vision was carried out by Yoav Frankel, A Yeshiva graduate, beginning in 2002. After sharing the paper on the Role of the Prophet with rabbis of stature in Israel and receiving their comments, we felt it appropriate to share it with the world for review and contemplation.

Ohr Margalit, Ph.D., is the manager of God's Holy Mountain study project. He teaches rabbinic studies at Bar-Ilan University in Israel, is a member of an advanced research group at the Shalom Hartman Institute and is a former Harry Starr fellow at Harvard.

Yoav Frankel, researcher and God's Holy Mountain project director, has a BA in Musicology and an MA in Cognitive Science, both from at Hebrew University in Jerusalem.

Viktoria Kanar is the Program Manager of the God’s Holy Mountain study project. She has a BA in Communications Management from Germany and is currently pursuing her MA in Interdisciplinary Democracy Studies at the Open University in Israel.
