Jerusalem and The Holy Temple
In honor of Yom Yerushalayim
Will The Temple Be Built This Year?
Every year at this time, we mourn the destruction of the Temple and pray for its rebuilding. Does this mean that the Temple will actually be built this year?
What Do We Lack With No Temple?
Why is it that only regarding the rebuilding of the Beit HaMikdash do we ask that it happen speedily?
Still No Holy Temple - What Are We Missing?
I don't understand what exactly we are missing by not having a Beit Mikdash. Throughout both the Written and Oral Torahs we see that the Temple is something tremendous and amazing – but in order for me to really mourn over its absence, can you help me understand what exactly it will give us?
The Crowns of Jerusalem
Jerusalem’s eminence stems from its being the city of the Holy Temple, the home of the kingdom of Israel, and the Torah center of the world.
Will Life With the Temple Rebuilt Still Be...Fun?
I'm quite afraid of what life will be like when the Temple is rebuilt. Does it mean that we won't be able to go to the beach anymore? Will we just learn and bring sacrifices all day?
Can we Identify the True Eizov?
Is eizov hyssop? May an eizov be used more than once?
Levi'im and Kohanim- What's the Difference?!
We all know that the Levi'im (Levites) have a special status & had unique roles in the Beit HaMikdash, but what is it? What's the common denominator between their singing, guarding, opening the gates & their role as the Torah teachers of Israel? Levi means "accompany" & they escort both the aristocratic Kohanim & the "lay" Israelite farmers. They are the visible & "hear-able" go-between at the entrance of the Temple, & the Torah educators who go around the country. They are not the super-stars, but rather represent the functional & necessary, which often go "unsung". A review of all of the details of the Levite laws beautifully show this point, & explain the Talmudic connection between them & Lashon Hara (negative speech).
