‘Stop Crying and Let the Children Build the Third Temple’ (Video)

Israel’s Temple Institute, which encourages praying on  the Temple Mount and working to build the Third Temple, has released a video production that shows children taking adults out of synagogue on Tisha B’Av to join them to rebuild the Temple.

The Chief Rabbinate of Israel discourages Jews from praying on the Temple Mount because of Halachic issues, while the Temple Institute and many other rabbis have ruled that Jews can ascend to certain areas of the Temple Mount.

Jews around the world are in the traditional Nine Days, the last part of the three-week period of mourning over the destruction of the First and Second Temples, both of which were destroyed in Tisha B’Av, or the Ninth of the Hebrew month of Av that began on Monday.

The Temple Institute has produced a two and a half minute video entitled “The Children are Ready II,” a sequel to last year’s video at this time.

The video shows men sitting on the floor and reciting the Lamentations that are said on Tisha B’Av, while children decide it is time to bring out their tools and get to work to rebuild the Temple instead of only crying over the past.

They march into the synagogue and convince the adults to leave behind their prayer books and come with them.

“Tisha B’Av is not about just mourning; it is about contemplating a world devoid of the Holy Temple, a house of peace and prayer for all nations, and it’s about asking ‘when will the mourning stop?’” said Rabbi Chaim Richman, international director of the Temple Institute.

“Last year, ‘The Children are Ready’ inadvertently outraged the Arab world with the Egyptian government releasing a formal complaint and rebuttal videos made by Hamas and other Islamist organizations,” the Institute commented Monday.

The Palestinian Authority and the entire Arab world have increasingly published propaganda about Jews trying to take over the Temple Mount and rebuild the Temple, and the new video is likely to cause an uproar among Muslims, particularly since the Muslim holy month of Ramadan begins this week.

    If they build a Third Temple, would Jews from around the world flock to it? I think it would be there to satisfy a lot of inflated egos. After all 42% of American Jews do not even attend a synagogue.

  9. G-d bless the children.

  10. That's because they charge so much money to be a member.No discount's for elderly.They ask embarressing questions if you feel you can't afford membership.

  11. When the Messiah comes and (almost) all the Jews live in Israel… we will build the Third Temple.
