Deuteronomy 11:26 – 16:17 || Isaiah 66:1-24
Commentary by Rabbi Chaim Richman for The Temple Institute, Jerusalem, Israel:
«As Moshe readies his people for their entry into the land of Israel and the establishment of a Torah-based just society, he introduces the concept of “the place which HaShem your G-d shall choose,” suggesting that the location of the future Holy Temple is unknown. Yet, from the days of Adam, Avraham and Yaakov, the location of the Holy Temple has been known. Has G-d really not yet chosen the place of His Chosen House? or is G-d simply waiting for Israel to choose likewise, and build the Holy Temple?
