Design of the Future Temple


[In case it was not clear: The past few emails have been meant to discuss the mitzvah of building the Beit haMikdash, since we are now in the calendar period commemorating its destruction. May it be rebuilt soon.]

"The structure that Solomon built is spelled out in Melachim, and such is the structure which will be built. Although it is recorded in Yechezkel, it is not spelled out and explained there. When the people of the Second Temple built in the days of Ezra, they built it like Solomon 's structure, along the lines of that which is explained in Yechezkel."

 (Rambam, Mishneh Torah, Hilchot Beit haBechirah 1:4)
