This year's 4th Annual International Temple Mount Awareness Day Online Three Hour Streaming Video Happening was, by all counts, a tremendous success. We had many viewers, and a very lively discussion with tens of different people inside the chat-room. It was a wonderful opportunity for Rabbi Chaim Richman and Yitzchak Reuven to communicate directly with old friends and with new friends. We have also received many warm emails and phone calls since the conclusion of the premier showing of the International Temple Mount Awareness Day Event.

The Temple Institute's Annual International Temple Mount Awareness Day Happening takes place each year during the week of Rosh Chodesh Nisan - the New Month of Nisan. Rosh Chodesh Nisan is

  • The anniversary of the dedication of the Tabernacle in the wilderness.
  • The first day of the Divine service.
  • The day on which fire descended from Heaven onto the altar, and the first day in which the Shechina, the Divine Presence, rested in the Tabernacle.
  • Nisan is the month of Redemption, the month in which our forefathers were redeemed from Egyptian bondage. But the month is called so not only because of the upcoming Festival of Passover and our ancestors' passage from slavery to freedom. Tradition teaches that in the future, as well, the great and final redemption will take place in Nisan.


The purpose of the day is twofold: to draw international attention to the plight of the Temple Mount, the holiest place on earth, where, currently, non-Moslems are not allowed to pray, and where a Moslem run campaign to destroy all existing remnants of the Holy Temple, and to deny that the Holy Temple ever existed, and to convert the entire Temple Mount into a Moslem-only site continues to be waged, day after day.

The Fourth International Temple Mount Awareness Day will be both entertaining and informative. Our main goal is to raise Temple consciousness and connect you with the Holy Temple, as we meet with people who have dedicated their lives to the Holy Temple and to rediscovering and revitalizing the disciplines, practices and knowledge that are part and parcel of the Temple experience and the wonder of the Divine service.



We meet with Baruch Sterman, physicist and founding member of the Ptil Tekhelet Organization, manufacturers of biblical blue tekhelet dye, and author of the recently published book, "The Rarest Blue."

We take you to the moon, or at least to a proper scientific/halachic sighting of the new moon, just as it was done two thousand years ago, and as all authorities agree it will be done again in the near future. Dr. Roy Hoffman, the founder of the Israel New Moon Society describes the correct way of sighting and reporting the new moon to the Sanhedrin, and the preparations being made today for the renewal of Torah commandment of announcing each new month based on the testimony of eye witnesses.

We step out of our studio and take you on a tour of the Temple Mount, where together we reconstruct in our mind's eye the bringing of the korban Pesach - Pascal offering - by all of Israel.

We are starry-eyed and spellbound, and brought to tears of joy by the extraordinary music and story telling of world renowned and much beloved Shlomo Katz.

We take you to the Jerusalem old city home of Rabbi Yisrael Ariel, founder of the Temple Institute, where he describes the power and significance of the month of Nisan.

The Children are Ready: A 90 second blast of fresh air from last summer's viral video sensation!

We talk with Miriam Arman, vocal pedagogue/reconstructionist, author, lecturer, fine artist and poet, who describes her spiritual approach to the teaching of singing, speaking and communicating, based on the ancient knowledge and practises of the Levites in the Holy Temple.

We take you on a personal, sneak-preview guided tour of our brand new Holy Temple Visitors Center, scheduled to open just days after the Awareness Day broadcast.

We take you to the Knesset - Israel's parliament, where we talk to veteran Temple Mount activist and newly elected Member of Knesset, Moshe Feiglin.
