"Motzei Shabbos"

Motzei Shabbos What a delightful time, it's not weekday and it's not Shabbos; it's Motzei Shabbos. It's a kind of sad and tranquil time, the week hasn't got down our backs yet the restful time is behind us. What do we do with such a time, how do we benefit from this moment every week. It's a time of Bracha and a time of commitment. In-between one commitment and another is the best time to refocus our aspirations.

Lots of detail, ink is spilled over and over regarding the temple, in fact I would say 1/4 of the Torah is in regards to the Beis Hamikdash. It's a thought that needs developing, I just wanted to point it out. May you have a blessed Shabbos!
