The Temple Mount Sifting Project is resuming

GOOD NEWS: TEMPLE MOUNT SIFTING PROJECT TO RELAUNCH FOR JERUSALEM DAY. A third of the removed Temple Mount soil remained unsifted and is in danger of being lost by erosion (Maayan Jaffe-Hoffman, Jerusalem Post). That's on 2 June.

The Temple Mount Sifiting Project Blog also has a post with additional details: Two Important Announcements. But the bad news is that the prospective funding by the Israeli Government has not (yet) appeared.
