Beit HaMikdash: The Temple and The Holy Mount
The Beit HaMikdash. The Holy Temple. The center of Jewish longing and aspiration.
In this visually stunning, meticulously researched work, the Temple Mount and the Beit HaMikdash, the place where Heaven touches Earth, where mortals can feel eternity, comes to vivid life.
Here, deep beneath the sacred earth, stands the Foundation Stone, where Creation began. Here, Abraham bound Isaac on the altar and King Solomon built the first Temple. From this mountaintop the magnificent Second Temple cast its light to the world, and it was here that the Roman legions burned and plundered the Temple's treasures.
Forgotten and neglected by the rest of the world, Jewish eyes and hearts have always turned to this holy mountain.
Now, the Temple Mount comes to life before our eyes.
Rabbi Zalman Menachem Koren brings to this groundbreaking work a profound knowledge of the Mishnah, Talmud, and the classic commentaries, and a deep familiarity with modern archaeological findings. A respected scholar, he has devoted decades to studying the Temple and the Temple Mount.
