Heart of the Nation
The Temple Mount, in the center of Jerusalem, has been the heart of the nation for 3000 years.
King Solomon, the son of King David, built the First Temple on Mount Moriah. The Temple occupied a small area of what is now called the Temple Mount. The Sanhedrin, the highest court, was also located on the Temple Mount.
Twenty-three kings ruled in Jerusalem during a 1000 years of independence. National holidays and festivals such as Passover, the holiday of freedom, were celebrated by the Nation on the Temple Mount.
King David said, "We stand at the gates of Jerusalem." Yet today we are prohibited entry.
The Psalmist said, "I shall bring my gifts to the sanctuary of God on the Temple Mount in the midst of Jerusalem." Today we are locked out.
