Do Yidden in Eretz Yisroel on Yom Kippur and Pesach say L’shana Haba’ah B’Yerushalayim? Does it matter whether they are in Yerushalayim itself or elsewhere in Eretz Yisroel? Does it matter if they’re outside the halachic boundaries of Yerushalayim but within the Israeli municipality of Jerusalem (or outside the halachic boundaries of Eretz Yisroel but within the State of Israel)? Does it matter whether they are a resident or a visitor?
yes in Israel they say it too, cause when we all say it, it is meant & said with the intention of the return of Hashems shchina & the rebuilding of the bais Hamikdosh should be rebuilt ASAP.
May we all do teshuva together as one loving nation very soon so mashiach can come already
Of course. The tefilla implies that next year we should be in Yerushalayim so that we can do the Avoda properly. Even people who live in E”Y and Yerushalayim want to see the Beis Hamikdash rebuilt and the shechina return, and are in galus until that happens, so the tefilla is still just as appropriate as it is in Chutz Laaretz.
Which is why when people sing it, no matter where they live, they say “L’Shana Haba’a B’Yerushalayim Habnuya”
pretty sure today’s Yerushalayim is not what the Yidden are waiting for. If you don’t say it, you’re missing the boat.
But Avi K and his like-minded keep posting that Jews living in the State of Israel are no longer in golus… They’ve arrived.
BMG_Guy: This topic’s for you.
Perhaps say it with the understanding that you are wishing the other person will continue to have the z’chus to live in Yerushalayiim next year and the year after etc… also wish that the next year there will be less conflict and more tolerance of the multiple communities living in the City, each with different political and religious perspectives.
When Yiddin in the US or England or wherever say it, are they/should they be thinking “next year we should be able to afford a trip for the whole family and spend Pesach in Jerusalem’s Plaza hotel?” Or are they thinking, “next year we should be zoche to greet Moshiach and spend Pesach in the rebuilt Yerushalayim at the Bais Hamikdash?”
To Winnie: probably the former…unless you happen to be wishing it to some guy in chassidish lvush on Eastern Parkway waving a yellow flag and humming a new nigun for “Yechi”
