17th of Tammuz: Beseech G-d until we have the Holy Temple!

On the 17th of Tammuz (27 June in 20’21), Jews begin their Three Weeks of mourning over the destruction of the first two Holy Temples with the prayer, “Permit G-d no silence until He sets and establishes Jerusalem as the praise of the earth [Isaiah 62:7]. For with You is the source of life; in Your light we will see light [Psalms 36:10]. Our G-d, we are contrite over our actions, we are shamed because of our wrongdoing.”

Noahides also await the building of the Third Holy Temple. This will be accomplished by the true Messiah (Moshiach), speedily in our days. As it says (Isaiah 56:7), “for My house shall be called a house of prayer for all the nations.”
