For the first time in 2000 years, Temple Institute produces pure olive oil for Temple menorah

Jewish Temple

The Temple Institute in Jerusalem produced, for the first time in 2000 years, the first flask of pure olive oil fit for use in the Temple’s Menorah.

150 kg of organic olives from the Golan Heights were used to make 4 1/2 liters of olive oil, which were produced under special conditions to maintain their ritual purity and then stored in clay flasks specially made for the oil.

The oil will be brought to the Temple Institute in Jerusalem’s Old City on Monday night, December 22, 2014, the 7th night of Chanukah.

  1. And now if the Jewish Antiquity Council would just realize that the accurate location for The Temple is 600 yds south of what tradition says is The Temple Mount but was actually the Headquarters for the 10th Roman Legion and named the Antonia Fortress. Google new evidence for location of the Temple in Jerusalem, be your own researcher you will be amazed.
