From time immemorial the Jewish people have had an unbreakable bond with the Temple Mount, beginning when Abraham journeyed there at G-d’s request to offer his son Isaac as a sacrifice.
Years later at this same location, King David officially bought the land, the “threshing floor of Araunah the Jebusite,” and built an altar to the Lord (2 Samuel 24:18, 21), and it was here that the First Temple (10th century BCE-586 BCE) and Second Temple (516 BCE-70CE) stood.
Established in January 2001, One Jerusalem is a strong, broad-spanning, non-profit, educational foundation committed to preserving a united Jerusalem, under 100% Israeli sovereignty. Jerusalem stands as the exclusive capital of the state of Israel, and only the Israeli government will protect and maintain access to the holy sites for members of all three major religions as well as others. One Jerusalem is a USA 501(c)(3) organization, and does not accept government funding of any kind.
