Why should we learn about the Mikdash?
Today when the Temple Mount is being ruled by non-jews, it is our duty to strengthen our connection to this holy place.
In depth learning will deepen our yearnings for the Beit Hamikdash which are within the soul of every jew.
The lessons will also emphasize the special power and connection that women have to the Temple.
Topics (the following are just a sample(
The structure of the second temple:
The various parts and chambers, including the holy of holies. We will learn how the Kitoret was made, where the Levi'im kept their musical instruments, where the Kohanim slept and the place where the women prepared the Parochet.
As each holiday in the Jewish calendar approaches we will learn about the connection each holiday has to the Mikdash.
For example: On Chanucha we will learn about the Menorah and the Or Haganuz, on Purim we will learn how Esther and Mordechai fought for the continued rebuilding of the second temple .On Pessach we will learn about the public Korban Pessach sacrificed in Jerusalem.
