“We’re back,” a Jewish activist proclaims with passion as he explains the message behind the major increase in Jewish visits to the Temple Mount, Judaism’s holiest site.
Rabbis Ari Abramowitz and Jeremy Gimpel of the Land of Israel Network have been banned from the Temple Mount for praying on the complex, as it is against the rules of the Jordanian Waqf, or Islamic Trust, which administers the holy site, for a non-Muslim to pray there.
During the Festival of Sukkot, however, thousands of Jews and others among the nations of the world have been visiting the site daily. By Wednesday, over 2,100 had ascended. The holiday ends Thursday evening.
Gimpel and Abramowitz, viewing the entrance to the complex and encouraging the visitors, explain the message behind this profound desire to visit the holy site.
Watch this inspiring video and see Jews hailing from Ethiopia, Russia and other places where Judaism was practically dead for generations returning to the eternal Jewish capital. Hear them proclaim, “Am Yisrael Chai!” – “The Jewish Nation Lives Forever.”
