Inhaltsangabe: The Beit HaMikdash. The Holy Temple. The center of Jewish longing and aspiration.
In this visually stunning, meticulously researched work, the Temple Mount and the Beit HaMikdash the place where Heaven touches Earth, where mortals can feel eternity comes to vivid life.
A breathtaking trip through history.
Here, deep beneath the sacred earth, stands the Foundation Stone, where Creation began. Here Abraham bound Isaac upon the altar, and King Solomon built the first Temple. From this mountaintop the magnificent Second Temple cast its light to the world, and it was here that the Roman legions burned and plundered the Temple's treasures.
Forgotten and neglected by the rest of the world, Jewish eyes and hearts have always turned to this holy mountain.
Now, the Temple Mount comes to life before our eyes.

Über den Autor:
I am delighted to recommend this stunning new work on what is perhaps the world s most consecrated and controversial of all holy sites the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. There are several books on the Temple Mount in the general press, but this one is particularly engrossing because of the visual imagery and, of course, the detailed yet very readable content. While this is a keepsake volume that you d want to grace your living-room coffee table, it s equally one to study for its rich history. Using the hundreds of maps, diagrams, and illustrations, even a lay reader will easily understand the topography, the design, and the function as well as the archaeological and biblical significance of the Temple and the Temple Mount complex.
The author, Rabbi Menachem Koren, is a renowned expert on the Temple Mount and environs. He provides unique commentaries on the Temple s historical development, including references to the Western Wall and to the present Dome of the Rock mosque, which currently occupies the Temple Mount area. I highly recommend this volume for any library, of course, as well as for every home wherein knowledge of the historical geography of the Bible is valued.
Rabbi Koren goes beyond the mere physical aspects of the Temple Mount. For two thousand years, the Temple destroyed by the Romans in 70 CE has been the focal point for the prayers of millions of Jews worldwide. The Hebrew prophets foretold its destruction as well as a final day of redemption and restoration. Rabbi Koren has dedicated his life to preserving and reinvigorating this hope. His work in these pages is a sweeping walk through the ages in the company of a compelling tour guide.
