THE 3RD ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL TEMPLE MOUNT AWARENESS DAY ONLINE SIX HOUR STREAMING VIDEO HAPPENING!
THIS YEAR'S INTERNATIONAL TEMPLE MOUNT AWARENESS DAY HAPPENING was an overwhelming success. Our guests represented a varied and multifaceted array of Temple Mount and Holy Temple activists. Their hard work and dedication in each of their various fields is reminiscent of the Torah's account of the building of the Tabernacle: many hearts and minds laboring together for a common and holy purpose - to create a "place" on this earth where G-d's presence can dwell among us. Each guest so eloquently and passionately described the field of their endeavors. Their words bore testimony to the great faith and spirituality that guides them. And, of course, there was the uplifting, soaring music of Yehudah Katz and his band. The strength of their music created an inkling of the outpouring of pure joy that will envelope all of us when we stand once again, together, in the Holy Temple!
NO LESS CRUCIAL TO THE SUCCESS of the day's events were the tremendous efforts of Be There Israel, who put together a fantastic production team whose professionalism and dedication and enthusiasm resulted in a beautiful show. (And they were a lot of fun to work with!) Special mention goes to Director Aviel Papo, whose ever steady hand at the helm gave the rest of us the space and the confidence to achieve our best.
VERY SPECIAL MENTION to Lorelai Lehrer and Steve Levine of Radio Free Nachlaot, who helped to oversee the production of Temple Mount Awareness Day and bring it to successful fruition.
MOST IMPORTANTLY, none of this would have been possible were it not for the generosity of the Shraga Family of America. Their support throughout, their vision, and their belief that the only way for the nation of Israel to progress toward the building of the Holy Temple is by spreading the word and sharing the dream, is truly what made this year's Temple Mount Awareness Day the great success that it was. Many, many thanks.
The 3rd Annual International Temple Mount Awareness Day Online Six Hour Streaming Video Happening will soon be available online. As soon as it is, we will be posting the link.
