    The High Court on Monday authorized a demonstration by groups protesting the banning of Jews from the Temple Mount. The demonstration is set to take place on Tuesday between 5:30 and 6:45 PM. Groups lobbying for the rights of Jews to pray on the Temple Mount called for a mass show of support against the ongoing harassment Jews face when they attempt to pray at the site. Police had sought to ban the protest altogether, and attorneys for the rights groups took their case directly to the High Court, which ruled that police could not prevent protesters from expressing themselves...

    A Mexican archeologist hunting for a royal tomb in a deep, dark tunnel beneath a towering pre-Aztec pyramid has made a discovery that may have brought him a step closer: liquid mercury. In the bowels of Teotihuacan, a mysterious ancient city that was once the largest in the Americas, Sergio Gomez this month found "large quantities" of the silvery metal in a chamber at the end of a sacred tunnel sealed for nearly 1,800 years. "It's something that completely surprised us," Gomez said at the entrance to the tunnel below Teotihuacan's Pyramid of the Plumed Serpent, about 30 miles (50...

In a blatant attempt to impose a discourse erasing any reference to the Jewish character of the site, the PLO "media advisory" claims that the "Al-Aqsa Mosque Compound, sometimes referred to as the Noble Sanctuary (“Haram al-Sharif” in Arabic), is the compound that contains Al Aqsa building itself, ablution fountains, open spaces for prayer, monuments and...

But only recently, after the discovery of life-size human statues and the unearthed columns,...

The temple, which takes over an entire city block, is an 11-story building twice the size of the iconic Christ the Redeemer statue overlooking Rio de Janeiro, and is complete with stone from Israel and a helipad for its founder's, Edir Macedo, convenience.

    The Third Temple in Jerusalem will be the House of Prayer for all nations. Every prophet of Israel, without exception, prophesied that the Temple would be rebuilt, ushering a new era of universal harmony and peace.

After millennia of yearning, only one organization is paving the way for the rebuilding of the Temple.

    When I grew up in an east coast city in Canada post WWII I never experienced any overt anti-Semitism. In my father's day it was different. Anti-Semitism was woven into the warp and woof of society. The most blatant manifestation could be found at the entrance of a popular river beach. There was a sign there. It said: NO JEWS OR DOGS ALLOWED. That sign expresses the essence of anti-Semitism. Human rights of any kind are for, well, humans. Jews are sub-humans. They are no different in genus from the other dumb animals except like dogs they are domesticated. Dogs...

Many then embark upon a game of hide-and-seek with their police escorts — whispering forbidden prayers while pretending to...

The central bank, which has already taken steps that have slowed to a trickle the incoming supplies that have exacerbated India’s current account deficit, has sent letters to some of the country’s richest temples asking for details of their gold. It says the inquiries are simply data collection, but Hindu groups are up in arms. “The gold stored in temples...

The program is the latest move in the agency's effort to combat what it sees as a widespread problem: failure by businesses, including mom-and-pops, to report all cash sales in order to minimize tax bills. Tax officials say the letters don't constitute an audit and instead are simply a request for more information. Some business owners and some lawmakers, however, call the new IRS program...

    A mysterious First Temple-era archaeological find under a Palestinian orchard near Bethlehem is increasingly gaining attention — despite attempts to keep it quiet. In February, a tour guide leading a group through an underground tunnel in the rural West Bank, not far from Jerusalem, was surprised to stumble upon the remains of a unique carved pillar. The pillar matched monumental construction from the 9th or 8th centuries BCE — the time of the First Temple in Jerusalem. That signaled the presence of an important and previously unknown structure from that period. Buried under earth and rubble, the pillar was now...

    Episode four opens with Jesus healing a paralytic and a leper. He draws large crowds and the number of his disciples grows. Among his followers is a woman named Mary. She is from Magdala near Tiberias, on the west shore of the Sea of Galilee. The notion that she was a prostitute comes from a Talmudic expression meaning "curling women's hair," which the Talmud applies to an adulteress. This is how the rumor began that Mary of Magdala was a prostitute. Some Talmudic writings cast aspersions on the early Christian leaders. That Mary Magdalen, Jesus, and the Virgin Mary were...

    "Of course the lamentations and fast for this year will only take place if the Beit Hamikdash is not built by Tisha B'Av", comes the announcement at the end of our prayers. How dismal. If we were still in exile and it did not depend on our actions, then possibly all we could do would be to roll our eyes heavenward and wait for G-d to bring the Holy Temple down for us out of the skies. But we are here, in Israel; in Jerusalem; on the Temple Mount. We do not have to build the Temple to finish with...

    The commandment of the Red Heifer is one of those Divine directives that is beyond the scope of our understanding.

Why would anyone have to purify himself after coming into contact with death? One simple reason: So that he may enter the Holy Temple. The Creator is the source of life. He chose the Holy Temple on the Temple Mount as His dwelling place in this world. The source of...

The high cone-shaped largely natural hill of Tell Husn dominates the southern approaches to the site. ... The landscape surrounding the main...

    Then Moses called for all the elders of Israel, and said unto them: 'Draw out, and take lambs according to your families, and kill the Passover lamb. And you shall observe this matter for an ordinance for you and your sons for ever. (Exodus 12) Soon, with G-d's help, we will establish Jewish leadership for Israel. Please be forewarned that when that happens, our familiar, comfortable Pesach holiday will be radically changed. We will have to forget about the Pesach seder with the extended family at the home of the family balabusta. Instead, we will be face to face with...
