Ask Rabbi Tuly: Why Does the Temple Need to be on The Temple Mount

Jun 1, 2021

גָּד֣וֹל יִֽהְיֶ֡ה כְּבוֹד֩ הַבַּ֨יִת הַזֶּ֤ה הָאַֽחֲרוֹן֙ מִן־הָ֣רִאשׁ֔וֹן אָמַ֖ר יְהֹוָ֣ה צְבָא֑וֹת וּבַמָּק֤וֹם הַזֶּה֙ אֶתֵּ֣ן שָׁל֔וֹם נְאֻ֖ם יְהֹוָ֥ה צְבָאֽוֹת׃

The glory of this latter House shall be greater than that of the former one, said the lord of Hosts; and in this place I will grant prosperity—declares the lord of Hosts.

ga-DOL yih-YEH k'-VOD ha-BA-yit ha-ZEH ha-a-kha-RON min HA-ri-SHON a-MAR a-do-NAI tz'-va-OT u-va-ma-KOM ha-ZEH e-TAYN sha-LOM n'-UM a-do-NAI tz'-va-OT

Haggai 2:9

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.”
