Temple Mount - Holiest of holies place for the Jewish people

In August, 2005, the latter half of the month of Av, Rabbi Chaim Richman, accompanied by several friends, ascended the Temple Mount. This visit was documented on camera. In this classic visit to the Mount, in strict accordance with Jewish halachic law, Rabbi Richman takes the viewer on a complete tour of the holiest site on earth. You will learn the history of the Mount and where the Sanctuary and its courtyards were located, and you will also see stark evidence of the illegal Moslem destruction on the Mount presently taking place. You will witness the difficulties experienced by all Jews who visit the Temple Mount today. You will stand literally meters away from where the Holy of Holies once stood and will stand again. Footage of this nature has never before been presented for public viewing. Now it can be viewed online. To see the complete 90 minute video:

On the second night of Chanuka, 5768 (December 6, 2007), the golden menora prepared by the Temple Institute and fit for use in the Holy Temple, was moved from the archaeological site of the Roman Cardo in the Jewish Quarter of the Old City of Jerusalem, to its new location, alongside the Yehudah Halevi staircase leading from the Jewish Quarter to the Western Wall Plaza. There it overlooks the Temple Mount, site of the future Holy Temple. A small move, perhaps, for the golden menora, but a giant leap forward for mankind, as the rebuilding of the House of G-d becomes one step closer.

Gog - U - Magog: The war to end all wars

The books of the prophets, the Talmud and the tomes of Jewish spirituality predate the other traditions of Gog and Magog- Armageddon. This documentary of classic Judaica surpasses any chicken-soup which new-age meditation can offer to provide us with comfort and meaning in these times.

Though this video can be somewhat provoking to say the least, I would strongly advice everyone who want to watch it to view it completely all the way till the end. It's there that sits them the climax of the entire documentary. In that end while the song is being sung and different people say what they feel to be said, then the message becomes clear. We witness that the entire documentary has been constructed around a three pillar system, namely provoking, awareness, and forgiving.

Nonetheless it has to be admitted that the provoking, especially in the beginning uses a 'fictive' way of doing so. In other instances does it attack some political persons quite straight on I must say. But remember that it's not the person that is being attacked, but rather the way things are going, or are being done. You have to try to see it within its entire perspective, even when it for some may be tempting to be overjoyed by certain types of provocative attacks. This is not the message this documentary wants to portray. At least this is my personal opinion of course. But you are entirely free to have your own one.

The most important message of this documentary sits them in combining the three different pillars together, not separated them because you don't like what you hear in one. That won't do it. Nothing will be learnt. And above all, try to look beyond and through the provoking. Don't keep much attention to the somewhat personal attacks. The messages sits not in front of you, not in the person, nor in the fiction.

So now the documentary:

 

 

The video below is another documentary that falls in line with Gog - U - Magog. It's somewhat less provoking, but both videos honestly speaking do make you think more deeply, to look more into the deeper depth of your own inner self. I would therefore advice people to watch them more than once if possible, also because this second one is subtitled in English, and sometimes can go a bit too quickly. The documentary in itself is in spoken Hebrew and is a kind of Biblical commentary on what happens right now in the Middle-East, even thus about Eretz Yisrael. And like the previous video, I let everyone free to think of it what s/he might think of it, but personally I must admit that the makers of this documentary do try to make a strong point to be heard.  

Are they right or wrong?

 I'm sure that people will have different views, some in support while others not. In any case is the message clear. Only do know that there was also the prophet Yonah. And of him we know, or rather learn that a negative prophecy doesn't have to be fulfilled. If we want, then we can prevent what is being told us in these videos. It doesn't has to happen as it is predicted that is. We can all come to our reasons and accept justice the way it was and is meant to be everlasting, as the Torah states. We just only have to listen, Jew and gentile alike with the light of our soul to the message that has been given the entire world of humankind.
