A Day At The Knesset

Today my husband and I attended an event at the Knesset. He managed to get a better entry pass and was able to take pictures at the event.

I had to make do with photographing only from the outside.

We attended a very interesting series of talks about Har HaBayit, The Temple Mount and Israel's sovereignty.

It was organized by MK Dr. Michael Ben Ari of the Ichud Le'umi, National Union Party.

I'm too tired at the moment to write about it in any detail, but I must say that it was the perfect way to spend one of the days leading to Tisha B'Av when we are commanded to mourn not only the destruction of our Beit HaMikdash, Holy Temple, but to also mourn the fact that although The Temple Mount has been in the possession of The State of Israel for forty two years, since it was liberated during the 1967 Six Days War, we have yet to rebuild it. Not only haven't we rebuilt it, but the government is going against official laws by forbidding Jewish Prayer in the Holy Site.

MK Michael Ben Ari is a true national treasure.

He is among just a handful of clear thinkers in the Knesset.

Everything possible must be done to help him.

I agree. I'm glad I voted for him.
