Nehama Spielman, a 12-year old Israeli girl, just made the discovery of a lifetime while participating in the Temple Mount Sifting Project.
While assisting in the project, Spielman discovered an ancient Egyptian amulet that was more than 3,000 years old!
Neshama Spielman and her family took part in the Temple Mount Sifting Project, an initiative tosort through earth discarded from the area of the biblical temples in Jerusalem.
There she found a pendant-shaped amulet bearing the name of the Egyptian ruler Thutmose III.
More than 170,000 volunteers have participated since the project began in 2004.
The discovery comes days before Jews celebrate the holiday of Passover, marking their freedom from bondage inEgypt. Spielman says Tuesday she was excited to learn of the significance of the amulet she found. She says “celebrating Passover this year is going to be extra meaningful to me.”
