One Special Prayer
By Yaacov Meir Strauss.
"MY master, O Caeser, there is a group of people who are rebelling against you and your empire. On Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the year for the Jewish people, the High Priest in Jerusalem stands and prays to their God to rid the world of the Romn Empire. He prays for the Jews to rule the Land of Israel and the entire world!"
"This requires a thorough investigation. We will send two spies to Jerusalem who will investigate the matter thoroughly."
When Gadus and Petrus - as well as Petrus' son Dimitrius - are sent by Caeser to find out whether the Jews are rebelling against the Roman Empire, they find much more than they bargained for. The three are swept up in the excitment of the Kohen Gadol's pre-Yom Kippur preparations as well as the dark intrigue of the Tzedokim who are plotting against him. As they meet up with our hero, Naftali, as well as the Kohen Gadol's son, Evyatar, the three Roman Jews learn all about the avodah in the Beis Hamikdash, and experience firsthand the wonders and miracles that took place there. Join Naftali, Evyatar, and Demitrius as they watch the Yom Kippur avodah, escort the goat LaAzazel to the 'desolate place,' and wait tensely for the Kohen GAdol to emerge from the Kodesh Hakodashim.
Will the Tzedokim succeed in their evil plot to disrupt the Yom Kippur avodah and depose the Kohen Gadol? Will Evyatar's father make it out of the Kodesh Hakodashim alive? Will Gadus and Petrus hear the Kophen Gadol's One Special Prayer and inform on him to Caeser?
One Special Prayer brings to life the days of the Second Temple with an exciting story, fully annotated maps and diagrams, and charming illustrations. It will awaken within you a deep yearning for the Holy Temple. May such yearning bring about the Redeption, speedily in our days.
