How Many More? It is time to build!

 

From www.IsraelNationalNews.com: In the run up to the 2,849th annual commemoration of the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem (Tisha B'Av), the Temple Institute has released a video proposing the rebuilding of the third Temple.

The Temple Institute is dedicated to doing everything possible to build the third Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount. They have published tens of volumes and recreated over 70 sacred vessels for use in the third Temple.

The video uses the metaphor of a glass, which is broken as part of the Jewish wedding ceremony, to signify that the celebration is incomplete so long as the Temple isn't rebuilt.

Rabbi Chaim Richman, International Director of the Temple Institute, commented: "Everyone that has ever attended a Jewish wedding knows that we break a glass, but how many internalize the message. The broken glass isn't supposed to let guests know when to shout 'mazal tov,' on the contrary it is a catalyst to move people into a new level of consciousness that fuses mourning with celebration - giving hope for a time in which we will finally rebuild the Holy Temple in Jerusalem. Every single bridegroom announces the proclamation that he and his future household will not forget Jerusalem, because it is incumbent on everyone of us, at all times to prepare for the rebuilding of the Holy Temple. With the work of the Temple Institute over the last three decades, preparation for the Temple is no longer a dream, it's a reality, in which everyone can play a part."

Baruch HaBa - Welcome
In the spirit of our father Avraham, we wish to welcome you to this site dedicated to Torah Learning for All People.

What is Torah?
Strictly speaking Torah is the Five Books of Moses. In a larger sense the term also includes the entire TaNaCh (Torah, Nevi'im, Chetuvim or Five Books of Moses, the Prophets, and the Writings of the Jewish Bible). In the Jewish sense Torah includes the Torah she'Bichtav (written Torah) and the Torah she'be'al Peh (oral Torah consisting of the teachings of the Jewish Sages) Jewish thought does not separate the two. In order to understand the written, one must also know the oral. In a very real sense Torah continues to be revealed to us today in the Torah teaching of ancient and contemporary Jewish Sages.

But the Torah is much more than a dry description of it's documents: "It is a tree of life for those who grasp it..." Mishlei/Proverbs 3:18 "The Torah of Hashem is perfect, restoring the soul..." Tehillim/Psalms 19:8



What does Torah mean?
It is unfortunate that the majority of English translations of the Bible translate the Holy Torah as "law." Torah means much more than "law." Most Hebrew speakers know that the root meaning of Torah is "teaching," but the insight of Rav S. R. Hirsch into the Hebrew root gives us a much more valuable picture:

According to Rabbi S.R. Hirsch's commentaries, the root of Torah תורה in Hebrew is hei-resh-hei הרה meaning: 1) conceiving; becoming pregnant, 2) teaching; implanting seeds of knowledge, 3) parent, 4) source of instruction.

But the bottom line according to Rav Natan T. Lopes Cardozo is that Torah "is nothing less than the voice of G-d communicating His Will to mankind..." The Written and Oral Torah by Rabbi Natan T. Lopes Cardozo
