The Temple Institute: Temple Talk: Av 25, 5765/August 30, 2005

Focus on the Temple Mount: In this week's Torah reading, Re'eh, the children of Israel are commanded to build an altar and a house for G-d in the place that He will choose. That place is Mount Moriah - the Temple Mount. 3,500 years later, do we choose to pursue our commitment to show reverence to the location of the Holy Temple, even though it lies in ruins today? For 2000 years, since the destruction of the Second Temple, our sages have been frequenting the Temple Mount and praying there. Why then, do some observant Jews today think that a visit to the Temple Mount is unprecedented and revolutionary? Why is the Holy Temple of consequence to all the nations, and not just the Jewish nation?
