Long before the mystery of the Ark of the Covenant, the Holy Grail and the Dead Sea Scrolls, there existed a place believed to hold the key to unlocking the most important discovery for all of mankind. Its message is so profound that throughout the millennia thousands have fought and died to reveal it, while others have fought and died to keep it hidden. Its teaching is so brilliantly encrypted into the very fabric of creation that its secret was known only to a select few.
Shrouded in mystery and intrigue, this place has been the root cause of one of the most intractable religious battles on earth but paradoxically has the potential to bring all of humanity closer together in the most unimaginable way. This well-kept secret has been encoded in sources so close to home that you will be amazed and astonished. Never before could we get so close to unlocking this mystery until now, due to groundbreaking scientific discoveries and new theories and understandings about human consciousness.
One does not have to be a student of history to know that one of the most contentious, talked about and sought after places in the world is the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. Since the dawn of creation, there has been no place on earth like it. Judaism teaches that it is this exact spot where the earth began. The place where Adam and Eve were created by God. The place where Abraham journeyed to sacrifice his son Isaac and the location of Jacob’s mystical dream of the ladder in which angels descended from heaven.
It is believed that this exact spot is where Mohammed, the prophet of Islam, ascended to heaven. It makes sense that it was also the site where both the first and second Temples were constructed, both of which were destroyed by powerful empires that were determined to control the Nation of Israel and this tiny spec of cherished real estate.
Jerusalem has been attacked, captured, destroyed and rebuilt more times than any other city on earth. For over 2000 years, this city or more specifically, the Temple Mount, has been at the center of an ongoing spiritual, physical and geographical conflict for Jews, Christians, Muslims, other religions and pagan cultures. Every empire sought control of this spot. The empires of Greece, Babylonia, Persia, Macedonia, Rome, Mamluk and more recently the Ottoman and British empires have fought to control this place.
600 years after the destruction of the 2nd temple by the Romans in 70 CE, the Muslims conquered Jerusalem and the order was given to build the Dome of the Rock, an Islamic shrine. Why is it called the Dome of the Rock? Because it sits atop what is known in Hebrew as the “Even Shetiya” — the ancient foundation stone of Jerusalem. The holiest place on earth for the Jews is the place where our story begins.
Under this stone lies a secret. One that dates back to the dawn of creation. One that has universal ramifications that can impact humanity in the most profound way. Why hasn’t this secret been revealed? Why have so many caused untold death and destruction to acquire it? You are about to find out.
Prepare to embark on a journey into the mystery surrounding the stone and the secret that lies within. We are going beneath the stone and explore it in a way that has never been seen before. We will uncover what is really at the epicenter of this mysterious, millenia-old, geopolitical conflict. The implications are astounding.
Our story begins when a professor at Yale University uncovers a notebook written by his great-grandfather that had been stashed away in his parents' basement. Something in the notebook catches his eye. It’s a code that propels him on an incredible mission to uncover what just might be the greatest secret of the entire universe.
Along this magnificent journey we will meet some incredible people. People of different faiths, including a Christian archaeologist and a Muslim truth seeker who converge on Jerusalem searching for answers to their deepest questions. These characters will propel us through the story. Our documentary style will incorporate real experts in their respective fields. Real life theologians, scientists, medical professionals and historians will help us reveal the history surrounding this mysterious stone and the implications of the secret lying within.
What's more, tradition teaches that history as we know it is quickly coming to a close and will usher in new world order. The Jewish prophets wrote that this may occur in a painful and destructive way: the war of Gog and Magog. A great war, a showdown between the forces of good and evil. Non-Jewish sources refer to it as Armageddon.
Jewish tradition teaches that there is a clear and positive alternative to this devastation and that this resulting new enlightenment can occur in a peaceful way, bringing an end to all hatred, bigotry and war. If so, there isn’t much time left. The clock is ticking. It’s a race to the finish, and we may be holding the key.
No matter their religious outlook, the viewer will identify with the main character and become a partner in his life-changing journey to uncover truth and goodness. The gems he discovers along the way serve as sparks of light that illuminate and expose the hidden mysteries of the Jewish people, the Land of Israel and the entire world.
THE MOST POWERFUL FILM ABOUT ISRAEL EVER PRODUCED
The film will demonstrate, beyond any reasonable doubt, that the only way to understand modern-day Israel is to delve deeply into its past. The false premise of any separation between the People and Land of Israel will be completely shattered. It is at the holiest place on earth, the very place where the spiritual meets the physical. The place where the core values of Judaism and Israel emanate to illuminate the world.
Through this film the viewer will gain a better understanding of the spiritual significance of Jerusalem and how you can harness its "energy" to impact and improve your life. Connecting to the destiny and purpose of this unique place will empower you with the understanding that every person on earth, no matter race, creed or color, has the potential to achieve greatness and positively impact the world.
This film projects a tapestry of people, places and events that weave together past, present and future. It is at this holiest place on earth, the very place where the spiritual meets the physical, the place where heaven meets earth, the foundation stone where the world itself was created and where the upper and lower worlds collide, where the story both begins and ends, not only for the Jewish People but for the entire world.
A COMPELLING, EFFECTIVE WAY TO SHARE THE TRUTH ABOUT ISRAEL
For decades, Israel has been unfairly portrayed by the mainstream media. More than just applying a double standard towards Israel, the media’s narrative has been to depict Israelis as colonialist, non-indigenous occupiers of a foreign land. The anti-Israel boycott movement (BDS) has become a respectable and desirable approach for university students around the world. Israeli public relations has been put on the defensive, preoccupied with protecting itself from the false accusation of the day.
This film will deal with the core, underlying issues in a deeper and far more effective way than ever before. The true story of Israel will be revealed in a bold, uniquely entertaining and engaging way that will capture the viewers’ emotions, intellect and soul. This film will reverse course from "putting out fires" to preventing them in the first place.
Introducing a new “top down” approach to understanding Israel that puts the People, Country and Land of Israel into their proper biblical, historical, sociological and national contexts all at once. The viewer will embark on an eye-opening, intellectual, awe-inspiring, entertaining, emotional, thought-provoking, breathtaking journey whose effects will be nothing less than life-changing!
A POSITIVE FILM ABOUT ISRAEL THAT IS NOT POLITICAL
An important aspect of this film is that it is not about politics. Throughout history, Israel has been denied its rightful place on the world stage. Unlike any other country, Israel fights daily to defend its right to exist. Why? There must be a deeper reason that goes beyond its people, politics and borders.
For the first time, the story of Israel will be told in a way that will force viewers to think and explore beyond their preconceived notions. All messaging is positive. No criticism of other religions, cultures or political movements. This film is simply pro-truth. It provides a pure, positive, comfortable space for intellectually honest seekers of the truth with a universal message of unity and purpose for all.
Right-wing or left, religious or secular, Jewish or Gentile, this film is really about YOU!

Risks and challenges
The challenge we face with making this film is that the subject revolves around one of the most contentious places on earth.
Religion in general comes with pre-conceived notions and perceptions that keep us from looking beyond ourselves. It's important that we are open to seeing perspectives that can impact not only ourselves but the entire world in the most positive ways. Unity is not easily achieved but we know it is possible.
Our goal is to impact people in a way that will enable them to see the bigger picture and how our differences are far less significant than we think.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
