Rabbi Chaim Seidler-Feller

“For My House Shall Be Called a House of Prayer for All Peoples”
Jerusalem and the Temple Mount: National Home or Universal Spiritual Center

Jerusalem and the Temple Mount have emerged as critical foci of the Arab-Israeli conflict. On the surface it appears that their significance to the Jewish world is as a symbol of our national sovereignty that emanates from their essential holiness. Despite the broad consensus embracing this view there is a compelling Jewish tradition that imagines Jerusalem and the Temple Mount becoming the site of universal devotion.

Join Rabbi Chaim Seidler-Feller for an examination of the sources that undergird both points of view and proceed to frame a position that affirms Jerusalem’s uniqueness to Jews and Judaism while at the same time promoting the aspirational vision of its universality.
