The Groundbreaking for the Jay and Jeanie Schottenstein National Campus for the Archaeology of Israel will take place in a festive ceremony on Sunday, October 15, 2006. The ceremony will be held in the presence of the President of the State of Israel, the Prime Minister, Minister of Culture, Science and Sport, and the families of donors from abroad, on Museum Row, Jerusalem.
It is with the monumental support and generosity of our friends from around the world that we are able to establish this dramatic building in the heart of Jerusalem. They all have a passion for Israel and the Jewish people, and an exemplary willingness to continously step forward and support the challenging archaeological work conducted in our country.

On Museum Hill, between the Bible Lands Museum and the Israel Museum, and across from the Knesset, we are breaking ground for a center that will be in the forefront in the illumination and education of the archaeological work. The Jay and Jeanie Schottenstein National Campus will serve as the National Center for the research, study, housing, curation, publication, education and illumination of the archaeological material excavated in Israel. It will be visited by archaeologists, toursist, school children, and the general public, and will serve as the link between our rich past and our future.
