  • Stunned Volunteer At City Of David Sifting Project Finds An Unbelievably Rare ‘Bekah’ Stone Weight From First Temple In Jerusalem

    The 'bekah' is a First Temple-period weight measure used by pilgrims paying their half-shekel tax before ascending to the Temple Mount, was recently discovered by a volunteer in the City of David’s wet sifting project in Jerusalem’s Emek Tzurim National Park. The word 'bekah' appears twice in the Torah: first as the weight of gold in a nose ring given to matriarch Rebecca in the Book of Genesis, and later in the Book of Exodus as a weight for the donation brought by the Jewish people for the maintenance of the Temple and the census, as recorded in Exodus 38, Verse 26.
