THIS WEEK'S DAF YOMI COLUMN BY ADAM KIRSCH IN TABLET: The Other Temples. In this week’s ‘Daf Yomi,’ Talmudic rabbis ask if it is possible to do service to the true God in the wrong location.

For more on the Jewish temple at Leontopolis in Egypt, see here. And, not mentioned in the essay above, there was another Judean temple to YHW on the island of Elephantine in Aswan. For more on it, see here and links.
