Eizehu Mekoman: Now More Than Ever

I was disappointed to see Rabbi Waxman’s article last week (“Against Saying ‘Eizehu Mekoman,’” May 16, 2024) opposing Rabbi Jachter’s earlier piece encouraging the recitation of “Eizehu Mekoman” (“No Skipping: ‘Eizehu Mekoman Shel Zevachim!’” May 9, 2024), the chapter of Mishnah describing the offering of the korbanot. In a time when our enemies deny that the Beit Hamikdash even existed and the validity of our connection to Yerushalayim is questioned daily, we need to strengthen our belief that the korbanot will any day now be brought in the Beit Hamikdash and the blood of these offerings will be sprinkled on the mizbeach. If one does not have enough time before tefillah to learn these mishanayot properly, then I suggest that one learn them — or other Torah related to the Beit Hamikdash — afterward.
