When I was in the younger grades I learnt this parsha and tried to emagine what is the longest ladder I have ever seen. Of course over the years i have seen many ladders but nothing bigger than one to get on top of a house. Just because I didn't really look for one
In this weeks parsha we get to imagine what the longest ladder in the history of the world looked like. The purpose of this ladder was to switch the malachim the ones who were on earth went up and the ones who were in heaven came down.The chumash in this weeks parsha says that the where the ladder scenario happened was where in the future would be the bais hamikdash.
We have had many stories in the place of the bais hamikdash including the one that will happen in the near future with the building of the 3rd Bais Hamikdash together with mashiach.
Good Shabbos All the best
