      Judaism: The Holy Temples

      Published: Wednesday, July 17, 2013 12:34 AM
      Inspiring pictures of the Temples and beyond.


      The words of the background song are from the chapter in the Book of Psalms lamenting the destruction of the first Holy Temple and the city of Jerusalem, By the Rivers of Babylon.

      "If I forget thee, O Jerusalem,

      May my right hand lose its skill

      May my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth

      If I do not remember thee

      If I do not place Jerusalem

      Above my highest joy"

      Hebrew captions towards end: And despite it all, we have returned.
