Raize Guttman 06-06-21 (26 Sivan 5781)

Parshat Vayeitzei - Chapter 28 - Verse  17

Yaakov woke up and he was afraid.  He said, "how awesome is this place!"  This is the house of Hashem.  This is he holiest place in the world.  This is the gate to heaven.  Rashi explain that this Beis Hamikdash is parallel to the Beis Hamikdash in heaven.  On top of where this place stood is the spot where the future Beis Hashmikdash will be rebuilt.  They are parallel.  This is the gate to heaven and all of our prayers, from all over the world ascend to heaven through this gateway.  (At the Kotel, the prayers to straight upward.)

In the future, the 3rd Temple will come down from heaven whole.  It will be built with our tears, and our mitzvot.  We will hear the shofar blow and it will descend with fire right in this place.

Raize speaks about  her journey in Yiddisheit.
