Ascending Har HaBayit in memory of Hallel-Yaffa Ariel hy'd ob"m


In the popular book Garden of Emuna, Rav Shalom Arush, (translated by Rabbi Lazer Brody) writes that there is " no Tribulation without Transgression".

Through introspection the Ariel family strongly feels that Hallel's heart that was so tragically stabbed by a vicious intruder who violated their holy abode in Kiryat Arba is symbolic of intruders now violating Hashem's Abode on Temple Mount.  They have taken it upon themselves to correct this Chillul Hashem, this desecration of Hashem's H-ly Name by inviting others to ascend Har HaBayit in a demonstration of asserting Israel's claim to this H-ly Mountain the site of our H-ly Temple. . 

In the YouTube video, Amihai Ariel also asked that the Mughrabi Gate, the only gate through which non-Muslims are allowed to ascend to the Temple Mount, now be called the Hallel Gate, in memory of his daughter. Hallel, a popular name in Israel, means "praise" and is the collective name for the psalms that were sung in the Temple service.
