The Stranniki (Russian for Runaways or Wanderers) are the strong Pomorsky Old Believers who rejected prayers for Tsar Peter and all government papers (identification, passports, money, etc). They would not wear clothing contrary to Old Orthodox Russia, nor eat with those of contrary Faith and Practice. Keeping themselves separate from the antichrist society they went far into the Siberian wilderness. This blog is about these people and my effort to conform my life to theirs.

Rebuilding the Temple in Jerusalem
The next link is a two minute news video from Russia (and in Russian) where rebuilding of the Temple in happening in the Jerusalem suburbs. A place is made to burn the sacrifice of turtledoves (pigeons). The Jews want to transfer part of this, which is about a 5 meters square stone plate, to the Temple mountain. The journalist, of course, says this would bring a loud uproar from the Muslims. But the Jews hope that part of it will be enough for a beginning. Maybe only the chair of the rabbi (teacher) mentioned in Leviticus. This is the 60th year of the beginning of Israel. As we see more and more of these types of things happening what manner of people ought we to be?
One more link for all around coverage of this significant event is the Israel National News report about Sacrificial Altar being built on Tisha B’av.
