Some may think that this is not a good time to even mention Har Habayit.
But yet this may be the exact time to talk and learn about it. Putting aside
the day to day difficulties and looking ahead to the future of Am Yisrael in
Eretz Yisrael, Har Habayit is the answer!
Are you feeling helpless these days? That you don’t know what we can do
to improve our situation? But do you believe that our future is ultimately
and intricately connected with Hashem and the rebuilding of His House in Yerushalayim?
Then let’s strengthen ourselves and do something. Let’s learn what it is
that the Muslims don’t want us to know! Let’s educate ourselves.
Come to a new in-depth program taught by:
Nashim L’Ma’an HaMikdash – The Women of the Mikdash,
at the Emunah Jerusalem office Beit Hachavera entitled:
“The role of women in the Mikdash, past, present and future.”
The program consists of three evenings of 3 hours, from 7 pm to 10 pm, week after week.
It is a one hour lecture, a break for supper and a movie, then the second lecture for an hour.
(Participants bring their own sandwich, hot drinks will be provided.)
The dates are Wednesday evening:
Nov. 18th, Nov. 25th, Dec. 2nd (Vav, Yud Gimel and Kaf of Kislev).
The topics are:
Nov 18th – The history and archeology of Har Habayit, 2 lectures with slides.
Nov 25th – Har Habayit today, what is really happening, 2 lectures.
Dec 2nd – The woman’s role in the Mikdash and the halachot for women concerning the Mikdash.
Ideally, we would end with a field trip to the Temple Mount for a walk around the perimeter of the Mount with one of the teachers from the course, at no additional cost. This will be decided at the end of the program.
The cost for this program is 240 nis for the three evenings.
90 nis for a single evening. Payable to Emunah.
We need a minimum of 25 to start.
Non-Emunah women are also invited. So please forward this to friends
