Funding for Solomon's Pools

CONSERVATION: Temple-era pools near Jerusalem set for renovation. US Consulate funds $750,000 restoration of 2,000-year-old Solomon's Pools near Bethlehem with hopes of making it a tourist site (AFP/Times of Israel).

The conservation of Solomon's Pools (a Second Temple-era site in the region of in Gush Etzion) has been needed for some time. I'm glad some funding has become available.
