   Study on the location of the Bet ha-Mikdash (Temple) and the Western Wall in Jerusalem) and the Even Shetiyah by Mikhael ha-Kohen Braver. On the basis of a tradition thousands of years old, the site of the First Temple can be fixed on the "Temple Mount," on the east side of Jerusalem, north of Ophel. From earliest times, the "Rock" (or "Foundation Stone") was regarded as the most sacred object on the mount and was associated with memorable events in history and with manifestations of the Divine Presence. (See also Yoma 5:2, "After the Ark was taken away a stone remained there [in the Holy of Holies] from the time of the early Prophets and it was called Shetiyyah ["foundation"].") The text is divided into five chapters and there is a drawing of the Temple Mount in the time of the author.

Mikhael ha-Kohen Braver (1862-1949) also wrote Zevi la-Zaddik (1931) on the life and work of R. Zevi Hirsch of the Zhidachov Hasidic dynasty; Pe’er Yizhak (1928) a similar work on R. Isaac Eizik of the same dynasty; and Zikhronot av u-Veno (Jerusalem, 1966), a bibliography of his works.
