Let's be honest when we the Jewish People gave up our rights to the holiest of all Jewish places in the Land of Israel the Temple Mount, we opened the door for trouble!

As we all celebrate and remember the great victory of the Maccabees over the Greeks and their Jewish secular sympathizers and the liberation of the Temple, I would like to use the call of Maccabees: WHO EVER IS WITH GOD, FOLLOW ME!

The Story

After the liberation of the Temple Mount in the 1967, Rabbi Yosef Elboim of the Belz Chassidic community, began to ascend the Temple Mount with faith that soon the Jewish People would rebuild the Temple and restore the priestly service. 

Rabbi Yosef Elboim together with his late father Rabbi David Elboim OBM' began a movement called The Movement for Temple Restoration - התנועה לכינון המקדש to begin training priests, reconstructing Temple vessels and clothing and to bring people to ascend the Temple Mount.  On a shoestring budget, the “Movement” had brought thousands to the Temple Mount over the years and has generated tremendous awareness regarding the Temple Service in our times, specifically in the Charedi (Ultra-Orthodox) public. 

Take the Chanukah Challenge:

1. Donate $8 to the fundraiser!
2. Re-post this page to 8X on social media
3. After lighting your Chanukah candles at home, make a 30 second video, while standing in front of your lit Menorah to call on your friends to also donate to the cause and that they too should make a supportive video! Post the video on your social network!

Help us raise a minimum of $8,000 for the Movement for Temple Restoration -  התנועה לכינון המקדש to continue in their important and holy work.  Currently only 10,000 religious Jews ascend the Temple Mount on a yearly basis, meaning that the “Movement” has still much work to restore Jewish presence, worship and the Temple service itself to the Holy Mount.
