Reviving the Prophetic Imagination, Sharing the Temple Mount

By Bradley Hirschfield

CLAL: the National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership, 1998

The author, a rabbi and a religious Zionist, discusses President Clinton's Middle East peace plan. This proposed plan would offer Palestinian sovereignty over the Temple Mount, with Israeli sovereignty over the remains of the two holy temples that are below it. The author asserts that while many Jewish people would essentially want to crowd around the Temple Mount and reject any Muslim claim to it, this is not a pragmatic option. Instead, the Jewish people must be open to considering creative policies that may remedy the tug-of-war match that consistently arises over holy lands.
