Temple Institute Special Presentation
The incomparable Rambam (Maimonides), of blessed memory, was a giant of Jewish law who journeyed from North Africa to the land of Israel, braving storm and sea and an inhospitable land under crusader domination for one purpose: to visit Jerusalem, ascend the Temple Mount and pray at the place of “The Great and Holy House,” the site of the Holy Temple. In doing so Rambam performed the positive commandment of “mora mikdash,” showing reverence to G-d in the place of His Holy Temple. We can and must perform this same commandment today.
