Mar 5, 2019

כִּי אִם־אֶל־הַמָּקוֹם אֲשֶׁר־יִבְחַר יְהֹוָה אֱלֹהֵיכֶם מִכָּל־שִׁבְטֵיכֶם לָשׂוּם אֶת־שְׁמוֹ שָׁם לְשִׁכְנוֹ תִדְרְשׁוּ וּבָאתָ שָׁמָּה׃

but look only to the site that Hashem your God will choose amidst all your tribes as His habitation, to establish His name there. There you are to go,

KEE im el ha-ma-KOM a-sher yiv-KHAR a-do-NAI e-lo-hay-KHEM mi-kol shiv-tay-KHEM la-SUM et sh'-MO SHAM l'-shikh-NO tid-r'-SHU u-VA-ta SHA-ma

Deuteronomy 12:5

According to Rabbi Tuly Weisz, “There is no more contested location than the spiritual epicenter of the world: The Temple Mount.” He asks, “Wouldn’t it be easier for the Jews to build the Third Temple somewhere else, anywhere else other than the highly contested Temple Mount?!” Rabbi Tuly further explains, “It wasn’t the rabbis who chose the Temple Mount, nor even King David or King Solomon – God Himself chose the location for the Temple.”
