Judaism: The Temple Institute on Pikudei
Rabbi Chaim RichmanRabbi Chaim Richman is the Director of the International Department of The Temple Institute in Jerusalem.
Welcoming G-d into our neighborhood and making this world a better place - this is the simple yet profound reason Israel has been commanded to build for G-d a Sanctuary on this earth.
Israel is a nation whose destiny is to live and act in G-d consciousness, thereby uplifting man and perfecting G-d's creation.
The sanctuary eventually became the Holy Temple, which was destroyed and rebuilt and destroyed once more, so that the sanctuary is now in our hearts.
