Thank you for being part of history: past, current, and future. I am just so excited about this project and your kind assistance.

While on vacation in Israel in April, my husband and I happened upon a construction and archeological site along the Sea of Galilee called the Magdala Center. The Center, on the land of Mary Magdalene’s home town, is building a pilgrimage hotel, spiritual center, and women’s international center open to those of any faith in the spirit of peace. In 2009, construction efforts unearthed a 1st century synagogue with the oldest known carving of a menorah in stone. The Israeli Antiquities Authority called this “the most important archeological discovery ever related to the 2nd Temple.”

The Magdala Center touched my heart for many reasons and I felt called to help out in some way to ensure its completion. Fast forward four months later… I am writing a blog at http://marcellaofmagdala.com to raise awareness and garner micro-donations; having a dinner on September 15th to raise much needed construction and archeological excavation funding; and participating in an archeological dig at the Center with my friend Maryann in early October.

Congratulations Corinne and all your friends for this rapid success! The interactive WebEx presentation was delightful and a joy to visit with you and George & meet so many of your wonderful friends last Saturday evening. They are all so enthusiastic about Magdala in general and it’s contribution for building inter-faith understanding! Keep up the great team work! Blessings from Jerusalem!
