"Churva" Synagogue

Question: I heard in the name of the Vilna Gaon that the building of the "Churva" Synagogue in the Old City of Jerusalem is a sign that the Third Temple will soon be built. What is Ha-Rav's opinion?
Answer: I have not heard this idea in the name of the Vilna Gaon. What is correct is that the second rebuilding of the "Churva" Synagogue was performed by the students of the Gra who made aliyah with Rabbi Menachem Mendel of Shaklov. But this occurred 200 years ago and, and the “Churva” was again destroyed. The "Churva" was built three times: The first time by Rabbi Yehudah Ha-Chasid from Poland, the second time by the students of the Gra from Russia and the third time by the entire Nation of Israel – by the State of Israel – and the "Churva" will therefore not be destroyed again. The Gra himself says in the book "Kol Ha-Tur" not to involve oneself with signs and hints but that we must build the Land and renew the life of the Nation of Israel in our Land, and then the Redemption will come.
