Moshiach Prepares For The Building Of The 3rd Beis HaMikdash
year, Matteh Moshiach arranged a series of lectures around Eretz Yisroel
to study inyanei Moshiach and Geula. People from over
fifty locations participated in learning Hilchos Beis HaBechira – at
the time, quite an impressive number. This year, however, the number of
locations has doubled!
the weeks preceding the Three Weeks, Rabbi Shmuel Hendel and Rabbi
Avrohom Rosenblatt of Matteh Moshiach contacted shluchim to begin
arranging the classes. Matteh Moshiach helped organize and subsidize the
classes on Hilchos Beis HaBechira.
to the Three Weeks, maps at Matteh Moshiach showed over 70 locations in
which classes would be given. As the deadline approached, the number of
requests grew, until 98 locations were pinpointed on the map!
series of lectures was in collaboration with Machon HaMikdash of
Yerushalayim and Rabbi Dov Lavnoni. Machon HaMikdash has produced highly
acclaimed models of the Mikdash and the vessels, as well as
material explaining topics connected with the Mikdash and the
service performed there. The members of Machon HaMikdash and Rabbi
Lavnoni did their best not to miss a single lecture crammed into the
sixteen weekdays of the Three Weeks.
lectures were embellished with visual aids such as slides, maps and
diagrams and were followed by questions and answers. The positive
feedback was heartening. The shluchim in Kiryat Gat related that
a woman stood up and with tears in her eyes said that we cannot wait any
longer and Hashem must build the Beis HaMikdash immediately!
another lecture in Kiryat Gat, Gerrer Chassidim sat alongside
Lubavitchers and men with knitted yarmulkas. In Bnei Brak, Jews
from various backgrounds and affiliations were present. The mashpia
Rabbi Zalman Landau took note of this and remarked that it reflected a
new reality, as it will be in the Yemos HaMoshiach, when all Jews
will sit side by side. In Chaifa, the organizers confirmed that they
have not seen such a large crowd on their premises in a long time as had
participated in this lecture series.
Hendel and Rabbi Rosenblatt informed the crowd that the basic premise of
these classes is, as the Rebbe says, to learn the laws for a practical
purpose to be put to immediate use, not as something that was once done
year the chaplain at the army base in Tzrifin requested a class. Dozens
of soldiers filled the army shul and listened attentively to the
lecture given by Rabbi Menachem Makover of Machon HaMikdash. Afterwards,
the commander remarked that according to these prophecies, the I.D.F.
would soon be putting down their weapons.
Beis HaMikdash according to shitas Chabad
a conversation with Beis Moshiach, Rabbi Menachem Makover,
director of Machon HaMikdash, said, “Matteh Moshiach’s terrific
publicity brought many people out to hear about the Beis HaMikdash,
according to the Rebbe’s directive.”
are many opinions concerning the details of the Beis HaMikdash,
and Machon HaMikdash prepared their presentations based on shitas
Chabad. Many thanks to Matteh Moshiach and to the participants. May
we speedily merit to see the Beis HaMikdash in all its glory.
only way to live with inyanei Moshiach and Geula
the successful conclusion of the mivtza, Rabbi Shmuel Hendel said
that the mivtza “was the result of weeks of work. We began to
organize the mivtza, not as just another directive of the Rebbe,
but with the knowledge that this is the only way to live with inyanei
Moshiach and Geula, and is the ‘straight path’ with which
to greet Moshiach.
the short amount of time we had to work with and the size of the mivtza,
we managed to reach a larger crowd than ever. This shows that this is
the holy desire of the Rebbe MH”M.
thank Rabbi Dov Lavnoni and Machon HaMikdash for their cooperation. May
we speedily see the revelation of the Rebbe MH”M who will rebuild the Mikdash
and gather in all Jews to Eretz Yisroel.”
