"O L-RD, Who are my power and my strength and my refuge in the day of trouble, to You nations will come from the ends of the earth and say, 'Only lies have our fathers handed down to us, emptiness in which there is nothing of any avail! Can a man make gods for himself, and they are no gods? 'Therefore, behold I let them know; at this time I will let them know My power and My might, and they shall know that My Name is the L-RD".
Jeremiah 16:19-21

Q: What is lacking in the world because of the destruction of the Temple?

Q: What is lacking in the world because of the destruction of the Temple?

Answer by Rabbi Oury Cherki
Q: What is lacking in the world because of the destruction of the Temple?

A: The Talmud states that if the world knew what they were missing because of the destruction of the Temple, the nations would have placed armed guards around it so that it would never have been destroyed.

The Temple is the place of atonement for the sins of all of humanity, by virtue of the seventy oxen sacrificed by Israel on the holiday of Succot. It is also the place where the holy Shechina appears, causing joy in the whole world and making the lives of all human beings happy.

When the joy was taken away the recognition of G-d disappeared. From the time of the destruction, G-d was transformed into a concept instead of a living reality. This is a tragedy for all humanity, which no longer recognizes the Creator.
