‘Kids Build Temple’ Clip Viral with 73,000 Views in 5 Days

The Children Are Ready

A new video released on You Tube by the Temple Institute in Jerusalem definitely qualifies as viral, with 73 thousand views only 5 days after its release.

A press release from the TI says “The Children Are Ready” is a 90 second clip made in an attempt to positively refocus people’s attention during the period of the Nine Days and Tisha B’Av.

“The upbeat video articulates the irony, that people have become entrenched in mourning for the sake of mourning, instead of contemplating the true meaning of the day: the loss of the Beit HaMikdash, a universal house of prayer and peace for all nations.”

In the video, two children are building a replica of the Temple in the sand, while their father is reading his newspaper.

In response to the video’s success, Rabbi Chaim Richman, International Director of The Temple Institute Said: “This Tisha B’Av we want people to do some serious soul searching and truly contemplate what they are missing without the Beit Hamikdash. We are delighted at the outpouring of well wishes and positive response we have received and urge all of Am Yisrael (the nation of Israel) to watch and share the video.”

The Temple Institute is an educational, not-for-profit organization dedicated to building a Holy Temple in Jerusalem. The Institute’s multi-disciplinary studies and outreach focus on the universal significance of the Holy Temple as a house of peace and prayer for all nations. Since its establishment 25 years ago, the Temple Institute has become the primary authority on all Temple related matters. The Institute has published tens of books, in multiple languages, including The Illustrated Encyclopedia of The Holy Temple in Jerusalem.
