The future of Jerusalem


Yoel 4:17 says, "Jerusalem will be holy, and strangers will no longer pass through."

"“Strangers will no longer pass through” to harm them, as they had done until today. It is also possible that strangers will not enter Jerusalem because in the future her sanctity will grow. Just as one – even a Yisrael - may not enter the heichal, so the whole city will be holy, and strangers from the nations will not be permitted to enter."

(Radak to Yoel 4:17)

Have a great day,
