Artifacts Belonging to the Temple

undefined

Rabbi Elchanan Lewis

28 Tevet 5765
Question
Do you know where all the artifacts that were in the Temple are, and are they ready to be put back into Solomons Temple when it is rebuilt. Also, will Solomons Temple be rebuilt on the original site?
Answer
Some of the artifacts were taken by the Babylonians and the Romans after the destruction; some were buried in Israel for future times to come. (see Tosefta Sottah 13; 1) The third temple will be different to the second and first (Solomon's temple) and the details are to be found in the book of Ezekiel chapters 40 – 44; yet in the same place on temple mount. May we merit to see it in our own eyes.
