The Truth about the Temple Mount Pt. 2
At CUFI, we are focused on several key issues with the goal of defending Israel’s strength, security, and sovereignty.
Biblical archaeology was revolutionized several years ago when evidence of the existence of the kingdom of David was brought to light in the form of a fortified Iron Age town excavated in the Elah Valley by Hebrew University Professor Yosef Garfinkel and Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA) archaeologist Sa’ar Ganor.
The place was described by the...
Archaeologists excavating in the heart of ancient Jerusalem have begun to uncover the neighborhood that housed the elite 2,000 years ago – most probably the priestly ruling class.
One of the houses had its own cistern, a mikveh (a Jewish ritual bathing pool), a barrel-vaulted ceiling and a chamber with three bread ovens.

CUFI is deeply committed to ensuring that President Obama will not have a blank check to negotiate a bad deal with Iran that will endanger America, Israel and the West. We believe that Congress has a moral and Constitutional obligation to review any nuclear deal that is reached.
There is an important bill in Congress -- the Corker-Menendez Iran...
