Moshiach 16 – Tisha B’av, The Fall of Persia, and Moshiach ben Dovid
Why did Reish Lakish – who lived in Israel – get upset at the Babylonian Rabba bar Bar Chana? Would the Beis Hamikdash have been destroyed if all the Jews returned from Bavel when it was built? What is the prerequisite for the Divine Presence to dwell upon the Holy Temple? Why can’t the third Beis Hamikdash be built with the permission of the nations of the world? Why will the Persians be destroyed if they were the ones who allowed the second Temple to be built? Why does the Moshiach ben Yosef process begin with the permission of the Nations, which is not the case with Moshiach ben Dovid? Why did we rebuild in 1948 with the permission of Harry Truman, but in 1967 – we received Judea and Samaria, and the Har Habayis and Jerusalem against the will of the Nations? We discuss all these things and more in the 16th Moshiach Podcast.
