In the morning prayers there is a passage that says, “May it be Your will that the Temple be restored in our days… and may we worship You there in awe as in ancient days and years gone by.”

I recite this every day, but exactly what do I mean by it? I thought of this meditation and other prayers for the rebuilding of the Temple when observing Tisha Be’av this year and seeing the way thousands went up to the Temple Mount.
