In memory of Rabbi Levi Yitzchok ben R' Zalman Yuda Deitsch OBM
In the Book of Exodus (38:21) we read: "These are the accounts of the Sanctuary (Mishkan), the Sanctuary of the testimony."
Our Sages said that G-d did not take the Holy Temple from the Jewish people permanently, but is holding it as a mashkon ("collateral" - a play on words with "mishkan") which will one day be returned. Furthermore, the repetition of the word "Sanctuary" in the above quoted verse alludes to the two Temples that would be destroyed before Moshiach establishes the Third and Eternal Holy Temple, speedily in our day.
