Wouldn't It Be Nice If...

Wouldn't it be nice if instead of three weeks of mourning, we would experience three weeks of joy?

Wouldn't it be nice if instead of mourning for the Beit Hamikdash, we would witness its glory?

Wouldn't it be nice if instead of being forbidden to enter the holiest area in the world, we will have a Parah Adumah to purify us?

Wouldn't it be nice if instead of using our prayers to replace the Korbanot, we would actually be able to bring Korbanot?

Wouldn't it be nice if instead of mourning that the Tamid offering was nullified, we would experience its being offered every day?

Wouldn't it be nice if instead of just saying Pitum Haketoret, we would be able to actually smell the Ketoret wafting through the air?

Wouldn't it be nice if instead of counting our sins which would require a Korban Hatat, we would have the opportunity to actually bring one?

Wouldn't it be nice if instead of being led by leaders who ignore or even trample on the Torah, we would be led by Mashiah Tzidkeinu?

Wouldn't it be nice if instead of sounds of wailing on Tish'a Be'av, we would hear sounds of jubilation?

Wouldn't it be nice if instead of living in the depths of exile, we will live in our Holy Land with a Beit Hamikdash in Yerushalayim?

Wouldn't it be nice if instead of being tempted to sin by an evil inclination, such a temptation will be destroyed forever?

Wouldn't it be nice if instead of doing Mitzvot that pertain to the land out of only rabbinic decree, we will do those Mitzvot from the Biblical command?

Wouldn't it be nice if instead of refraining from eating meat and drinking wine during the nine days, it would be a Mitzvah to eat meat and drink wine during that time out of the sheer joy of the Tish'a Be'av holiday?

Wouldn't it be nice if instead of the Shechina being hidden, it would return to its former glory?

Wouldn't it be nice if instead of a time of Hashem's Face being hidden, we would witness miracles that will be greater than those of Yetziat Mitzraim?

Wouldn't it be nice if instead of Jews being banned from certain parts of the Land of Israel, we will be able to live and move freely therein?

Wouldn't it be nice if instead of days filled with suicide bombings, Kassams, and Ketyushas, we will have days filled with Mikra, Mishna, and Gemara?

Wouldn't it be nice if instead of our holy vessels laying in the vaults of the Vatican, they would be used in the place where they belong?

Wouldn't it be nice if instead of many questions and difficulties being left in a state of Teiku, those questions will finally be resolved?

Wouldn't it be nice if instead of saying "There is no solution to the situation in the Middle East", there will finally be a solution - one that I call "Plan M" - the Mashiah solution?


Yes, it sure would be nice. And it will happen. Soon, with Hashem's help.

Sounds like an old Beach Boys' song - maybe we can do a Variations on it?
Great post, yaak!

With apologies to the Beach Boys.
