Where did the bling-bling go-go?

He didn't need it in Shiloh, Ir Hakodesh, where you can breathe the ketoret.

===============================
Sounds like Madrid.

Shy, maybe you want to delete that.

No. It's a joke. Relax.

Or are you worried that children reading this blog will now en-masse be booking one way flights to Spain?

It's not funny mocking a holy place, even if it's my home town. Tel Aviv? Yes, that's a joke.

Um, all of Eretz Yisrael is kadosh in that sense. And in the sense of Kedushat Makom, halachically the location upon which Mishkan Shiloh was located only had Kedushat Sha'ah.

For example, there is no problem today with a someone Tameh going there. In fact, academically, you could locate a cemetery there - lo aleinu (tartei mashmah).

"Mockery" is a ridiculously harsh word for what I wrote.

So, relax and have a Shabbat Shalom!
