The second question was whether respondents wanted to see the Temple rebuilt. Sixty-four percent responded favorably, while 36% said no. An analysis of the answers showed that not only the ultra-Orthodox and the religious look forward to the rebuilding of the Temple (100% and 97% respectively), but also the traditional public (91%) and many seculars (47%).
Gesher Director General Rabbi Danny Tropper told Ynet: “We are a nation with a remarkable historic affinity. The Temple was destroyed 1,942 years ago, and almost two-thirds of the population wants to see it rebuilt. I don’t think this is a practical proposal, but it seems that Tisha B’Av really does constitute a day of meaningful memory to most of the people.”
