Exciting New Programs

Cornell Ptil Tekhelet offers many educational programs including community events (with live demonstrations by Tekhelet dye-experts from Israel via Skype) as well as on-campus University lectures. The most recent of these took place at Cornell University and featured Nobel Prize Chemist Prof. Roald Hoffmann and Dr. Baruch Sterman, co-founder of Ptil Tekhelet.

A very successful community event took place on Thanksgiving at Bais Medrash Ohr Chaim, Monsey NY. Click here for more information

Wadi Murba'at Textiles

One of the highlights of Ptil Tekhelet's 100 Years to Tekhelet Research Conference was a presentation by Dr. Naama Sukenik from the Israel Antiquities Authority who, together with Prof. Zohar Amar and Dr. David Iluz from Bar Ilan University, examined a unique and important find from the Murba'at caves in the Judean desert. A fabric dated to the second century, dyed with material obtained from the Murex trunculus sea-snail and colored blue, was shown to be of local Israelite origin. More information on this incredible treasure can be found here.
