On the day after the Feast of Shavuot (Weeks), the Sanhedrin will reenact a ceremony officially establishing the borders of Jerusalem for purposes of reinstating the Temple service. Last performed by Nehemiah in the sixth century BCE, this was the final step before beginning the sacrifices, but today, it is also meant as a powerful and timely political statement.
Rabbi Hillel Weiss, spokesman for the nascent Sanhedrin, said that establishing these borders is perhaps the final step in reinstating the Temple service, noting that directly after Nehemiah reestablished the boundaries of Jerusalem the sacrifices began anew.
“The only thing lacking today to begin bringing sacrifices is the altar,” Rabbi Weiss explained to Breaking Israel News. “When that is ready, we will need to have these borders firmly established.” Sacrifices that are required to be eaten in Jerusalem, such as Peace Offerings, the first fruits and the Paschal lamb, must be eaten inside the boundaries of the city. Establishing these boundaries designates the area of holiness.

||Exciting news! All of the temple vessels are ready, the Kohanim (priests) are trained. They practice the rituals. Now this.|

|Exciting because it signals we're closer than ever to the end, or . . . ?|

||That's the way I see it. A temple must be standing before Anti-christ comes on the scene (understood, we're not looking for him.) Therefore it's a sign that the Rapture is near.|

Given the right developments in the Israeli political climate, the completion of this ritual would mean that Old Testament style temple worship could potentially be reestablished in a matter of days.
All it would really take would be the construction of a temporary stone or earth alter as per Exodus 20:24-25 and the erection of a large tent or other prefabricated building to serve as a temporary temple until a permanent Temple structure could be built.
