The A.R.K Report

The golden chest believed to have held the stone tablets on which the Ten Commandments were inscribed, the Ark remains one of the most sought-after and mystifying religious artifacts in history.

For years researchers have attempted to determine where it might be or if it even still exists at all. It’s last known location was King Solomon’s Temple but when the Babylonians conquered Jerusalem the temple was destroyed and the Ark disappeared along with it.

Harry Moskoff is a researcher who has spent over 25 years attempting to solve the mystery. Sometimes referred to as a “Jewish Indiana Jones,” Moskoff believes that the Ark, which was thought to have been placed within a room of the Temple referred to as the Holy of Holies, may still be there inside a hidden chamber that was built underneath by King Solomon specifically for this purpose.

No direct archaeological evidence of King Solomon’s Temple has ever been found under the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, has been hotly debated for centuries.

Moskoff’s quest to locate the Ark is the subject of his book – The A.R.K Report.

The Vatican and ME

The book The Vatican and Me is an account of a work in progress – a work of enormous cultural significance which has already yielded great benefits but has the potential to provide the world with a great deal more.

Author Harry Hirschel Moskoff is a man of many parts – lawyer, academic, rabbi, lecturer, media mogul and TV show host, journalist, and member of the White House Press Pool. Into this mix of occupations and activities must be added his intense interest in biblical archaeology. His involvement in this field has led him to become an internationally acclaimed expert on sacred Jewish artifacts, especially of the Roman and Byzantine periods.

The Vatican and Me is an object lesson in perseverance in the face of seemingly intractable indifference. Moskoff, sustained by a powerful vision, battled tirelessly against obfuscation and procrastination – and in a sense continues to do so.

He has some way to go to achieve his cherished museum loan plan, but his work has undoubtedly contributed to improving Catholic-Jewish relations. The Vatican and Me is an absorbing account of his voyage so far. It is an inspiring tale.
