Foreigners in Jerusalem ✡ “A Foreigner Who Is Not Of Your People Yisrael” – Israel365

Or if a foreigner who is not of Your people Yisrael comes from a distant land for the sake of Your name
I Kings 8:41 (The Israel Bible™)

וְגַם אֶל־הַנָּכְרִי אֲשֶׁר לֹא־מֵעַמְּךָ יִשְׂרָאֵל הוּא וּבָא מֵאֶרֶץ רְחוֹקָה לְמַעַן שְׁמֶךָ

Foreigners in Jerusalem

King Shlomo (Solomon) dedicated the first Beit Hamikdash (Holy Temple) on the festival of Sukkot  (Feast of Tabernacles) and, in his inaugural address, asked Hashem (God) to hear the prayers of foreigners who would “come to pray towards this house”. The first Temple was constructed with the assistance of members of gentile nations, under the leadership of Hiram of Tyre. Similarly, the second Temple was built thanks to the permission and encouragement of Cyrus of Persia, and the third Temple will one day also be built with the participation of righteous non-Jews. This international participation is necessary, as the Beit Hamikdash is meant to be a “house of prayer for all nations”. King Shlomo’s dedication speech has been memorialized on an imposing glass monument standing tall at the Western Wall today, etched with his universal message to inspire visitors and worshippers from all countries, nationalities and backgrounds.
