EXTREME MAKEOVER: Temple Edition ~ The Laws on G-d’s Residence of Choice Rambam: Hilchot Beit HaBechira. Chapter 8; 1
Episode #73 – “HONOUR GUARD”
In this Episode we open Chapter Eight of Hilchot Beit HaBechira. It begins with a focus on us creating an presidential aura and atmosphere of palace prominence in and around the Sanctuary and Temple Mount.
This is the essence of a new Mikdash Mitzvah that we are now introduced to: The Divine Commandment to Guard Hashem’s Holy Home; a sacred duty to ensure it’s rarified dignity.
Once opening the subject we’ll delve into practical Halacha; the Torah Law and Order by which we govern ourselves today. Does there need to be a building for this Mitzvah mandate to apply?
