Fe Fi Fo Frum

Imagine a world two thousand years ago, people running up to the beis hamikdash for the shalosh regalim, getting a glimpse of the holy of holies. Every single Jew is in Jerusalem for the holiday including friends and family. All the leading rabbonim are there and the big kahuna in his many garments too. Everyone is amazed at the beauty of the holy temple with its sea like look made out of different shades of marble. The amazing miracles that occur there everyday, you feel attached to g-d as if everything is right.

Wait, whats this? They are repainting the Holy temple Black! why? who? what is going on? The Beis hamikdash just got a frummie makeover! You run to the nearest figurehead and ask him why they painted such a beautiful building a dull color like black. He answers you "Recently the rabbonim figured out that colors are immodest and decided that this building either has to go or be painted, if you ask me we should stop wearing robes because women wear them on shabbos". You are in shock, but I loved the holy temple before it was painted, it inspired me you thought, whats next to go the kohen gadols fancy clothing? All of a sudden there is a big commotion going on. You run to find out whats going on. As you jump to get your head above the crowd you see that a small army is ushering out all the women who came to the temple mount, this is outrageous you say, they came to bask in g-ds glory why else do we have an ezras nashim? It seems that everything that went on in this place for the past hundred years is now against the Torah....


This would be the scenario of the shalosh regalim if it were to happen nowadays. I find it sad that such a beautiful time of year in those days would be considered a shandah if it happened today, not to mention the women who danced around on Tu b'av would also be.

Times are tough

From what I read and heard, we are in a generation where things are becoming more and more challenging.
Our job is to hold on and look forward to the light at the end of the tunnel

Don't forget that they would abolish the Levi'im singing as well b/c it would sound like a choir in a a church or a conservative shul.... ;)

N said...

We need Moshiach so badly just because they're only going to listen to him when he shows up...

G6 said...

N -
Are you sure they're even going to listen to him???
You know that there's the old joke that the reason we are going to be feasting from the Leviathan when Moshiach comes is b/c it is a fish and nobody will trust Hashem's shechita......

The Leader, Garnel Ironheart said...

N, they for sure won't listen to him if he doesn't look exactly like them, wear the right kind of hat/shtreiml/capote, etc.

That's probably why he hasn't come yet. he doesn't need the aggravation.

Don't forget that the Aron would be thrown ou, because the cheruvim on top were a boy and girl looking at each other.
