According to a poll commissioned by Makor Rishon, the majority of Israelis want Jews to be permitted to pray on the Temple Mount.

Of the 512 Jewish Israeli adults who responded to the poll, 52% were for permitting Jewish Prayers on the Temple Mount, while 37% were against it.

22% of those polled said they are fasting on Tisha B’Av, the holiday that commemorates the destruction of the Temple.

 

The final question in the poll was, “Do we need to now begin rebuilding the Temple?

The response to that question was more disappointing.

Unfortunately, 61% of all those polled said no.

Among those who designated themselves as Chardali (Chareidi National-Religious) or Ultra-Orthodox 71% said yes.

While most disappointingly, among those who designated themselves as National-Religious only 43% said yes. Among Traditional, 43% said yes, and among the Secular 9% said yes.

    The Temple is in our hearts! But sure we need a place to gather together! Petision signed.

  4. The only place where polls determine Halacha is within the Sanhedrin (of ALL segments of the Torah community, not just a few self-appoinmted members). Since the Rabbinical ban remains in full force, all these sentiments tend to cause the people to err. A soulsearching is in order.

  6. Rc Fowler says:

    There is no good reason Jews should not be up on the temple mount whenever they want–praying, singing, dancing–doing whatever!

  7. Eva Feld says:

    Mourn at Temple mount of course. Not to be forgotten that the destruction itself was a bad political decision which Jeremaiah warned would happen in disaster, and it did. Rebuild the Temple? Has V'halilla, G-D forbid!

  8. Interesting post. Thanks for sharing, Eva. I am going to repost it.
