|Just days before the Pesach holiday, Rav Yisrael Ariel, founder of The Temple Institute, paid a visit to the Admor of Machnubka in his office in Bnei Brak. The Admor expressed his admiration upon leafing through the Institute's Encyclopedia of The Holy Temple, as well as the Institute's weekly Shabbat leaflet, Machon HaMikdash, (which he requested to have distributed to his beit midrash). The Admor recalled to Rav Ariel a visit he had made some years earlier to The Institute's Treasure of The Holy Temple Exhibition in the Old City of Jerusalem, and encouraged Rav Ariel and The Temple Institute to continue their work of educating the public and raising Temple consciousness.
During the course of the visit, the Admor opened up the Beit Yaakov Siddur of Rav Yaakov Amdin. He turned to the commentary of Rav Shlomo Kluger. With the intention of resolving the well known difference of interpretation between Rashi and the Rambam, Rav Shlomo Kluger wrote that the construction of the Third Holy Temple will be initiated by man, with the work of his hands, and only after will be completed by the "hands of Heaven." With that, the Admor added that he awaits the day that he will merit setting into place foundation stones of the Holy Temple with his own hands.
In addition, the Admor showed to Rav Ariel the words of the gaon Rav Avraham of Trisk, in his book Magen Avraham, in which he wrote, (parashat Bo), that in Egypt, because of the impending danger of the fiftieth gate of impurity, HaShem Himself needed to "personally" intervene and redeem His people, but that the future redemption will be attained by natural means.
