VIDEO: The Architectural Plans for the Third Beis Hamikdash Have Begun


bhThe Temple Institute has released a modern three-dimensional architectural rendition of the future Third Beis Hamikdash utilizing the latest building material and techniques. The three-minute video walks viewers through the main sanctuary, showcasing decades of research and tens of innovative Halachic solutions to various perplexing issues that were resolved to create fully functional, ready-to-use plans. As the visual tour sweeps through the sanctuary, one can see the menorah, incense altar and showbread table, all of which have already been prepared by the Institute, among 70 other sacred vessels. The presentation was specially released to coincide with the Ninth of Av, the Jewish national day of mourning which commemorates the destruction of the First and Beis Mikdosh.

The video comes one year after the Temple Institute appealed to its supporters to take part in an Indiegogo crowd funding campaign that raised over $100,000 for the architectural plans. The video was first released to supporters of a current campaign to raise the first kosher para adumah in Israel in over 2,000 years. Over the past five years, the organization has released its most ambitious campaigns and poignant videos to reframe the mourning period into one of active preparation for the Third Beis Hamikdash.

Rabbi Chaim Richman, International Director of The Temple Institute noted: “One third of all Torah commandments pertain to the building of and service in the Holy Temple. Today, we not only mourn the destruction of the two Holy Temples, but also our inability to fulfill one third of the Torah. Over the last three decades, the Temple Institute has done everything in our power to research and prepare for the Third Temple. As world Jewry sits on the ground mourning the first two Temples, we have taken a huge leap towards the rebuilding, by releasing a 3D architectural rendition of the Third Temple”

  1. Waste of time & money. Do they think moshiach is gonna use these plans to build the Bais hamikdosh?? Moreover do they think they’re smarter than generations of gedolim & Jews to think that this is how we show Hashem were ready?? Nonsense. We show Hashem were ready by doing teshuva & rectifying to wrongs that brought about the destruction in the first place. And by actively awaiting & looking forward to the geula.

  2. I’m not sure I understand what they are doing with respect to developing construction plans for the Bayis Sh’lishi. Doesn’t is say “BaEish Hitzata uBa’Eish Ata Assid Livnosa – that HKB’H will build the 3rd Bais Hamikdosh himself B’neis? Perhaps we should just focus on deserving the Geulah and bringing Moshiach and leave the construction of the Bais Hamikdash to HKB’H. Anyone agree?

  3. Attn #1 , #3 & #15
    The Rambam holds that we are obligated to build the Bais Hamikdash.

    There’s a time to hope and pray and there is a time to act. …
