Centuries before trying to deny it, Muslims carved Jewish link to Jerusalem into mosque

Newly studied inscription from Mosque of Umar dated to 9th or 10th centuries highlights correlation between Dome of the Rock and biblical Jewish temples

A recently studied inscription from a mosque near Hebron offers insight into how, until the mid-20th century, the Muslim world considered Jerusalem’s Dome of the Rock to be the successor to two ancient Jewish shrines that formerly stood atop the Temple Mount.

The previously overlooked dedicatory inscription from the Mosque of Umar in Nuba, a village nearly 26 kilometers (16 miles) southwest of Jerusalem, mentions the village as an endowment for the Dome of the Rock and Al-Aqsa Mosque. But what’s striking is that the Dome of the Rock is referred to in the text as “the rock of the Bayt al-Maqdis” — literally, “The Holy Temple” — a verbatim translation of the Hebrew term for the Jerusalem temple that early Muslims employed to refer to Jerusalem as a whole, and the gold-domed shrine in particular.

Sanhedrin to Trump-Putin: Fulfill Cyrus-like role in Jerusalem

With the two top world leaders supporting Jewish right to Jerusalem, Sanhedrin asks that they build Third Temple.

By Hillel Fendel, 15/11/16 02:45

Eyeing what appears to be a twice-in-history opportunity, the organization called the Sanhedrin has called on U.S. president-elect Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin to join forces and back the rebuilding of the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem.

The Sanhedrin is an attempt to renew the glorious Great Court of the same name from the last Jewish kingdom, some 2,000 years ago.

Prof. Rabbi Hillel Weiss, spokesman for the Sanhedrin, said, “The political conditions today, in which the two most important national leaders in the world support the Jewish right to Jerusalem as their spiritual inheritance, is historically unprecedented.” Read more

Sanhedrin Asks Putin and Trump to Build Third Temple in Jerusalem

“Thus saith Hashem to His anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have holden, to subdue nations before him, and to loose the loins of kings; to open the doors before him, and that the gates may not be shut.” Isaiah 45:1 (The Israel Bible™)

The Nascent Sanhedrin is calling on Russian President Vladmir Putin and US president-elect Donald Trump to join forces and fulfill their Biblically-mandated roles by rebuilding the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem.

Rabbi Hillel Weiss, spokesman for the Sanhedrin, contacted Breaking Israel News to announce that the election of Trump, who has promised to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, coupled with Putin’s expressed desire for the Temple to be rebuilt, prompted the Jewish court to send a letter offering the two the opportunity to act as modern-day Cyrus figures: non-Jewish kings who recognize the importance of Israel and the Temple.

Cyrus the Great, King of Persia in the sixth century BCE, announced in the first year of his reign that he was prompted by God to make a decree that the Temple in Jerusalem should be rebuilt.

Thus saith Koresh king of Paras: All the kingdoms of the earth hath Hashem, the God of heaven, given me; and He hath charged me to build Him a house in Yerushalayim, which is in Yehuda. Ezra 1:2

Oldest Hebrew Mention of Jerusalem on Papyrus from 7th Century BCE!

A rare, ancient papyrus dating back 2,700 years to the First Temple Period is the earliest extra-biblical source to mention Jerusalem, the capital of the ancient Kingdom of Judah, in Hebrew writing.

The document was formally unveiled by the Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA) on Wednesday morning, just as UNESCO voted to deny any Jewish connection to Jerusalem.

The IAA’s Amir said this is “an important and special find that bears witness to the historical relationship between the Land of Israel and Jerusalem, and the Jewish people.”

“The discovery of the papyrus on which the name of our capital Jerusalem is written is further tangible evidence that Jerusalem was and will remain the eternal capital of the Jewish people,” stated Israel’s Minister of Culture and Sport Miri Regev.

Temple Service Could Be One Week Away as Sanhedrin Appoints High Priest

“For the priest’s lips should keep knowledge and they should seek the law at his mouth; for he is the messenger of Hashem of hosts.” Malachi 2:7 (The Israel Bible™)

A significant step was recently taken towards reinstating the Temple service when the nascent Sanhedrin selected Rabbi Baruch Kahane as the next Kohen Gadol (high priest). The selection was made as a precaution for Yom Kippur. If the political conditions should change, allowing the Jews access to the Temple Mount, they will be required by Torah law to bring the sacrifices. Rabbi Kahane is confident that if that should happen, Temple service could begin in less than one week.

 

Rabbi Kahane is a prominent scholar, knowledgeable in the complicated laws pertaining to the subject of the Temple Service. He is part of the Halacha Berurah Institute, established by Rabbi Avraham Isaac HaCohen Kook, the first Chief Rabbi of Israel, which deals with the elucidation of Jewish law from its Talmudic sources (Oral Law) and commentaries. He has played a prominent role in all the reenactments of the Temple services performed to date.

This year has already seen much Temple-oriented activity: the Temple Institute has created a registry of kohanim; established a school for educating men of the priestly class in the details of the Temple service; and performed reenactments on all the holidays, including the especially significant Passover sacrifice.

Where is the Holy Temple? Are We Still Living with the Biblical Spies?

As we pray at the Western Wall and gaze up at the Temple Mount, we cannot help but wonder why there is no Holy Temple today. Does it have anything to do with the slanderous report of the spies in the times of Moses?

Although we cannot claim to understand the ways of God or even attempt to do so, we do know that the day set aside for the destruction of both Temples, the 9th of Av, had its roots in the times of the Jewish people’s first journey to the Land of Israel.

Tisha b’Av – the ninth day of Av, the day of destruction of the Holy Temple – was destined for tragedy when the Jewish people accepted the slanderous “report of horrors” from the delegation of spies. But it wasn’t supposed to be that way.

The Torah portion called Shlach (Numbers 13:1 – 15:41), Hebrew for the command to send, tells the story of perhaps the most tragic and failed mission of the Jewish People in their history. Ignoring God’s promise that the Jews would successfully conquer and inherit the Land of Israel, a delegation of 12 dignitaries, representing each of the tribes, was sent out by Moses to see for themselves what Israel was really all about.

Tzfat Chief Rabbi declares ‘next step is the Temple Mount’

Rabbi Eliyahu reveals growing spiritual awakening seen in Lag B’Omer festivities, next stage is ‘going up to the Mount, nothing less.’

Ahead of the Lag B’Omer celebrations on Wednesday night, Tzfat (Safed) Chief Rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu spoke to Arutz Sheva about the spiritual awakening of the Jewish nation in Israel – and declared the “next step” in that process is to control the Temple Mount.

The Mount, which was the site of the First and Second Temples and is the holiest site in Judaism, remains under the de facto control of the Jordanian Waqf despite having been liberated in the 1967 Six Day War. The Waqf bans Jews from praying at the site and imposes harsh limitations and discrimination at the holy site. Read more

Israeli Activist May Golan: Temple Mount and Tel Aviv

45,711 refugees and asylum seekers live in Israel as of April 2015, of which 92% are from Eritrea or Sudan. Many of them are Muslim fanatics and have caused a serious problem in Southern Tel-Aviv where many of them have been settled by the Israeli government.

May Golan has been campaigning for this serious issue of the lawlessness of Southern Tel-Aviv due to the refugees and asylum seekers to be covered by the mainstream leftist dominated media for years. Thanks to her perseverance, it has become a hot issue picked up by the political parties all the way to the Prime Ministers Office.

May Golan and her genuine passion shines through in all of her media contributions, not just to fight for the poor and downtrodden peoples of South Tel Aviv – but for all Jews that care to maintain and if necessary fight for the State of Israel to remain the established home of the Jewish people. ​

May Golan has founded the “The Hebrew City” movement in which she fights for the Jewish identity of Southern Tel-Aviv.
