Two brothers lived on different sides of the same mountain, one with a large family and one by himself. They didn’t see each other much, but they were supportive of each other. In fact, their support for each other was so strong that one specific act even inspired the building of the Temple in Jerusalem. What could they possibly have done to inspire such an important landmark? Listen to this retelling, by Rabbi Marc Katz, of the classic story. For a written version of this story, read “How the Temple Site was Chosen” in The Classic Tales: 4,000 Years of Jewish Lore by Ellen Frankel.
