According to Eli Shukron, excavation director on behalf of the Israel Antiquities Authority, “It is now absolutely clear that the Jerusalem’s water consumption during the First Temple period was not solely based on the output of the Gihon Spring, but that it also relied on public reservoirs”

The setting was the acoustically wonderful Recanati Auditorium of the Tel Aviv Museum of Art. The occasion was the gala concert by the Israel Chamber Orchestra before its departure for a grand tour of nine Latin American countries. The audience of the sold-out performance was graced by the presence no less than six Ambassadors – Argentina, Brazil, Ecuador, Guatemala, Mexico, Uruguay – and many Consular representatives from around the world. Also present were several Israeli VIP’s, including Ms. Orit Noked, Minister of Agriculture.
