Gilgal: a rediscovered, priceless chapter in our history
Do you know the significance of Gilgal? The purpose of the location is to teach the nations. Please read these verse's from Joshua 4 Living Bible (TLB)
21 Then Joshua explained again the purpose of the stones: “In the future,” he said, “when your children ask you why these stones are here and what they mean, 22 you are to tell them that these stones are a reminder of this amazing miracle—that the nation of Israel crossed the Jordan River on dry ground! 23 Tell them how the Lord our God dried up the river right before our eyes and then kept it dry until we were all across! It is the same thing the Lord did forty years ago[b] at the Red Sea! 24 He did this so that all the nations of the earth will realize that Jehovah is the mighty God, and so that all of you will worship him forever.”
Did you just read that? The 24th verses says.. God selected Gilgal so that all the nations of the earth will realize HE is the one and only God. And that all will worship Him forever!

Since 2008, Father's House Educational Foundation has been taking groups to this amazing yet little known archaeological discovery.
The Moshav Argaman, a small farm village on the west side of the Jordan River, has leased this holy site to the Moreshet (Heritage) Foundation Israel (MHF Israel). The purpose of the lease is to preserve this holy site and develop the area around as a place of worship, education and enjoyment for generations to come.
Father's House Educational Foundation is a support partner of MHF Israel in the development and promotion of this remarkable educational opportunity. Together, we are making it possible for people of all faiths to visit and study on-site with insight!
Imagine! You actually have a vital role to play in redeeming God's covenant land for this and future generations.
- No monuments or buildings will be constructed over the ancient site, thereby covering up the recent findings.
- Moshav Argaman & MHF Israel will keep the amazingly preserved stone-lined camp just as it is for the world to visit and understand.
- The Gilgal Visitor Center will be built adjacent to the ancient camp.
- Your generous support will help make it all possible !
