And do devout Israelis consider that land treaty to apply to modern day Israel (1948), when there is no temple?

    I'm not sure what the term "land treaty" means. If you are asking whether the existence of an autonomous theocratic monarchy was dependent on spiritual conditions, then yes.

  • Hello rosends. I guess what I'm asking is how religious Jews view modern day Israel in relation to the promises and curses, since there is no Temple. Do they see the covenant "back in business" or that they are at best still in limbo until a new Temple is built or the Messiah reigns in Zion?

    While modern Israel might be a sign of an upcoming redemption, and while it is still incumbent upon us (in Israel and abroad) to follow laws and keep up the parts of the covenant that we can, the current political entity is not the theocratic, autonomous monarchy.

  • Okay, thanks. That was exactly what I wanted to know. If you paste your comment as an answer I would be happy to mark it as the answer.
