Temple Mount Reopened to Jews

reprinted from Arutz Sheva
12:01 Mar 28, '06 / 28 Adar 5766

( The Temple Mount has been reopened to Jews after a petition was filed by Attorney Baruch Ben Yosef with the Election Commission claiming that the closure of the site to Jews was aimed at currying favor with the Arab public for the ruling Kadima party.

Groups of Jews have already ascended the mount during the hours of 7:30 AM to 10, when Judaism's holiest site is open to Jewish visitors. The mount opens again at noon and more worshippers are expected to ascend at that time.

Jews who ascend the mount according to Jewish law must prepare themselves by cleaning their bodies completely, removing excess skin and nails, before immersing in a ritual bath and then adhering to the outskirts of the Mount so as not to tread on parts of the site forbidden due to ritual impurity.
