Talmud Tractate Midos

Though destroyed 2000 years ago, the Talmud records much detail of the Second Temple construction & function. Fascinating. Visual Tour.

This class is taught during the  Three Weeks , powerfully charged days that can change the past!

Thousands of years ago, the prophet Isaiah (1:27) proclaimed: " Zion  (The Jewish people and the Temple)  shall be redeemed by law (Torah Study), and her returnees by charity." The antidote to the Holy Temple destruction and exile of the Jews and all the consequent catastrophes is through Torah Study and tzedaka says Isaiah. If his prophesy of the destruction certainly came true, why shouldn't the redemption come via his antidote?!

The Three Weeks are a particularly auspicious time to learn about the Holy Temple construction. Why? It says in the Midrash (Tanchuma Lev. 14), that after G‑d told the Prophet Ezekiel to instruct the the exiled Jewish people (after destruction of the first Temple) about the measurements and design of the third Holy Temple:

"Master of the world," Ezekiel replied, "why are You telling me to go and tell Israel the form of the House; they are now in exile in the land of our enemies—is there anything they can do about it? Let them be until they return from the exile. Then, I will go and inform them."

G‑d answered: "Should the construction of My House be ignored because My children are in exile? The study of the design of the Holy Temple as detailed in the Torah can be equated to its actual construction. Go tell them to study the form of the Holy Temple. As a reward for their study and their occupation with it, I will consider it as if they actually built the Holy Temple."
