Making a Donation of Gold or Silver:

The Temple Institute is unable to accept donations of gold or silver via the mail. Exorbitant customs duty makes this infeasible, and the Temple Institute's inability to pay the customs duty may lead to the package being returned to the sender. The Temple Institute can only accept gold or sliver that is delivered in person here in Israel. If you are interested in donating gold or silver in person, please contact us ahead of time so that we can be available to receive the silver or gold during your stay in Israel:
