Light to the Nations – with Rabbi Chaim Richman of The Temple Institute.
Weekly series with new teachings available every Thursday.
On the Temple Mount: Maimonides’ Hilchot Beit HaBechirah – Laws of the Chosen House, chapter VII: The ten levels of sanctity of the land of Israel continue to increase in sanctity upon the Temple Mount. Not only is a person with tamei met – spiritual impurity caused by contact with a dead body – allowed upon the Temple Mount plaza, but even a dead body itself is allowed on the Mount. However, the tamei met person is forbidden by penalty of karet – spiritual excise from the Jewish people – within the confines of the Temple Courtyards.
To learn more about the Temple Mount, and how to visit the place of the Holy Temple within the permissible areas, and in strict accordance with halacha – Jewish law – please visit the Temple Institute’s online Temple Mount section.
Light to the Nations teachings are now available in mp3 audio files, and can be accessed through iTunes.
