Religious Zionist rabbis: Ascend the Temple Mount – Haaretz – Israel News

Top religious Zionist leaders came together Sunday at a rightist conference advocating Jewish ascent to the Temple Mount.

It’s hard to remember when was the last time Israel saw such a unity between its religious Zionist leaders.

Rabbi Medan, one of the heads of the moderate Yeshivat Har Etzion, told the conference participants that he recently met with a ‘top defense official’ and discussed the sparse presence of Jews in the Temple Mount.

“He spoke of the significance of Jews ascending the Temple Mount, and said that he already got us permits to ascend. ‘Where are you?,’ he asked. He sees this as an existential struggle, and believes we must recruit more people.”
