    Two pre Tisha Ba’av news items which I think are worthy to note.

    My Personal note: I hope that by the merit of the yearning for the Mikdash and all the practical preparation underway, Hashem answers us and redeems us. May all Am Yisrael begin to participate in the exciting perpetrations and may they stand as a tefilah before Hashem.

    1. Israel National news reported:

    Half the Israeli public wants the Holy Temple (Beit HaMikdash) to be rebuilt. This is the main finding of a poll commissioned by the Knesset Television Channel and carried out by the Panels Institute.

    Forty nine percent said they want the rebuilding of the Holy Temple, while 23% said they do not. The remainder said they were unsure.

    Should the State of Israel take active steps towards the reconstruction? Forty-eight percent said no, while 27% said yes.”



    Of the 49% that want the Beis HaMikdash to be rebuilt and the 42% that believe it will be, I bet they are made up of all the frum people here and the Jewish cab drivers. Few people have emunah like an Israeli cab driver.


    Also You two probably also would answer that you want the beis hamikdash… But do you?????


    hmmmmmm, i wonder what that’s like compared to american jews………. (“what’s a holy temple”)

    MORE KIRUV, EVERYONE!!!!!!! and fast, because moshiach is coming!!


    Speaking of kiruv, I read a story about a secular Israeli couple who came to America. A frum couple next door wanted to mekarav them and so they asked their rabbi what to do. He told them to just be a good example. – They became friends with them and just spoke about general things when they saw them. – Later, they invited them for Shabbos and had a nice time. Over time, the couple who came here decided to be become religious and move back to Israel.

    Sometime, we just need to be a good example and be a good friend, and it will overflow to others.


    yosr, you seem not to be a Chariedi and I must say that I am very impressed with some of the Mizrachi type (I know that label is not so in use these days, but as I am not familiar with categorizations used to name groups in Israel, I will call you that, but not c”v with a negative intentions) people who are very excited and enthusiastic about the Third Bais Hamikdosh and its being rebuilt. I think the Chariedim do have what to learn from you about enthusiasm for the Third Bais Hamikdosh. However, this can also be a slippery slope, as there were other times in history where such people, who literally craved for the rebuilding of the Mikdosh with every fiber of their being, ended up doing doing the opposite, for example Shabbtzi Zvi followers. Not c”v that I’m comparing, not at all and don’t get me wrong, however we need to tread carefully here.

    First of all, the Israeli government will not rebuild the Bais Hamikdosh because of the mosques standing on the mount, and I might add b”H for that, otherwise we would have crazies doing all kinds of things there. And we certainly don’t want nor need the Israeli godless government, although it does support Chariedi institutions and we MUST be grateful for that (although they do it for political reasons only) they are still one of the last Jews we want rebuilding the Bais Hamikdosh, because the last thing it would be would be a mikdosh.

    The art of Lechem Hapanim, while again it’s wonderful to try to create the lechem and vessels and all, it’s exciting as it should be, they absolutely cannot be considered de facto items that will %100 be used for the future mikdosh, as only Moshiach will teach us these holy items really ought to be made. As for now we can only speculate how they need to look if we follow all the shittas and meforshim. This much like the worm, I forgot its name, that we used to use for tzitzis to get its blue color and the mesorah was forgotton. So even though there are shittos that swear they have the real worm that was used, there was still a break in mesorah and not everyone accepts their shittoh. It’s the same in this situation. Not everyone will accept these shittos as facts. But when the holy objects for use in the Bais Hamikdosh will truly be built, after Moshiach arrived, then all Jews of every stripe will accept that as reality.
