1st Time in 1944 Years. Festival of the Water Libation Celebrated Like Never Before.

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

If this does not say that the end of the age is near, the building of the temple will.  

From the Temple Institute:

 ”Festival of the Water Libation 5775: On the 18th of Tishrei, the 3rd day of chol hamoed – the intermediary days of the Festival of Sukkot (Sunday, Oct. 12 2014) – history was made in Jerusalem. For the first time since the destruction of the Second Temple, a reenactment of the famed Festival of the Water Libation (Simchat Beit HaShoeva) was held, under the direction of the Temple Institute and in cooperation with the Association of Temple Organizations. Kohanim (men of priestly descent) dressed in priestly garments, accompanied by a crowd estimated at many hundreds, descended to the ancient Shiloach spring in the City of David, and drew water in a special Temple vessel. The ceremony was marked by dancing and singing, and the sounding of blasts from the shofar and silver trumpets. By the time the procession reached the old city of Jerusalem, the ranks of participants had swelled to well over one thousand. Click here to view a short video!

“After returning from the Shiloach spring carrying a silver flask with pure waters back to the Holy Temple, two kohanim ascended the great stone altar in the Temple’s inner courtyard. They placed two silver cups on the southwestern corner of the altar. One kohen poured the water from the silver flask while the second kohen poured win…e into the second cup. Both cups had spouts that allowed the wine and the water to flow though and down the side of the altar all the way to the altar’s base.

Willow branches were placed in each of the four corners of the altar, each tall enough to extend beyond the top of the altar. Accompanying the ceremony were other kohanim sounding blasts on silver trumpets.

Sunday’s reenactment of the Water Libation Ceremony featured a scaled model of the stone altar, surrounded by willow branches in each of the four corners. Kohanim sounding silver trumpets according to a set order called out by Rabbi Yisrael Ariel, founder of the Temple Institute, again accompanied the ceremony. In this photo the two kohanim are seen just before they ascend the altar.”

      Judaism has no connection with the beliefs of the ancient Israelites. Judaism didn’t exist until after the 2nd temple period, ie after the destruction of the Israelites by the Roman empire in 70 CE. The capitalistic political party called the Pharisees invented the word of mouth (rabbinic) religion called Judaism. They never met.

      The only involvement of men in the festival of the water libation was young priests filled up the huge bowls with oil for lights. It was a women’s festival.

        And yet Judaism is plagiarizing those evil beliefs of those evil ancient Israelites (i.e. modern palestinians i.e. Hamites from Africa – as one would expect of your fundie brain). Or is that just the Christians in your fundie self flagellelating brain?
