amazing! there are more proclamations like these from rav kook. Some even sharper than this one.
this should be posted all around in yerushalayim
I wonder what religious Zionists, who go on the Har Habayis, would answer to this?
Do they just invoke his name when it suits them?
In 1940s R Elya Meir asked my grandfather R M C. to head the Shabbos pirchei in one of the Cleveland shuls. Upstairs was a weekly Mizrachi get-together where there was mixed dancing. My grandfather challenged the madricha; how could they allow mixed dancing? Her response was that R Kook would have allowed it in these circumstances.
My grandfather wrote to R Kooks foremost talmid, R Yaakov Moshe Charlap who responded with a responsa in which he wrote chas vshalom there is no basis whatsoever for this”. The far-reaching responsa also covered the role of women in general, for example that his rebbe held that it was wrong to take the sefer torah over to the womans side to kiss the sefer torah.
Does the Temple area also include the Kotel, for that is also the Temple area.
