The Jewish person’s yearning for the third Holy Temple, a central aspect of Judaism, is a belief in the coming of the Messiah and a belief that the Temple will be built only then.
But the Temple Institute in Jerusalem is not waiting for the Messiah.
In preparation for the arrival of the Messiah and the building of the third Holy Temple, the Institute has recreated many of the utensils and ritual objects that will be needed for the services once the Temple is built.
These objects, made of expensive materials such as silver and gold, are replicas of the same objects used in the First and Second Temples two thousand years ago.
The Temple Institute has truly succeeded in demonstrating that Jewish life two millennia ago is just as relevant today.
