In these past 35 years, due to the generous contributions and donations of many good hearted people all over the world, harps have been continued to be built in our workshop for this purpose.  When they are completed, they are taken to the Temple Institute, where they are kept on display in the Temple Treasures Museum in the Old City of Jerusalem.

 

Over the years, many people have asked how they can also be part of this project, and so we are now opening this invitation up to a larger audience ~ by being a sponsor for the building of one or more of these harps.

 

If you would like to partner with us in this prophetic work, we welcome you to join us.

 

The harp that we build from your contributions will be presented to the Temple Institute of Jerusalem for dedication and safekeeping. There they are on public display in the museum awaiting their true purpose ~ to bring forth holy music in the Temple, and send a heavenly blessing of sound and healing to all the peoples of the world…

 

 

 Each donor will personally receives a certificate of donation and their name will be entered into a scroll of Lev Shalem.

Since fewer halachic requirements were placed on the types of instruments used, musicians and instrument makers alike were granted a certain degree of artistic freedom, and many different and exotic instruments were performed upon throughout the year in the Holy Temple.

The musical highlight of the year took place during the Sukkot festival, on the occasion of the Simchat Beit haShoeva celebration (the Festival of the Water Libation). Maimonides describes the number of instruments being played throughout the all-night festivities as "countless." In addition to the Levitical musicians, other accomplished artists were also invited to join in.

This beautiful harp (nevel in Hebrew) was recently donated to the Temple Institute. The harp was hand-crafted by the renowned Jerusalem craftsman Micah Harrari, who, together with his wife Shoshanna, revived the ancient art of harp making in the land of Israel some twenty years ago. The nevel pictured above was made out of native Israeli Rosewood, and features twenty-two strings, the number of letters in the Hebrew alphabet. Among the many instruments played in the Holy Temple, only the silver trumpets were specifically commanded by Torah. The book of Psalms mentions a number of instruments which were used by the Levites to accompany the Divine service, the nevel (which throughout

 

 

The Temple Institute takes this opportunity to publicly express its heartfelt thanks to the person who made this generous donation. It is our prayer that the ultimate beneficiaries of the new Rosewood nevel will be the Levitical Temple performers, and all who gather together to honor and praise theG-d of Israel, Whose presence dwells in the Holy Temple.
