The Symbolic Relevance of the Twin Towers, the First and Second Temples, The Washington Square Arch and the Arch of Titus…..

In this post I will explain how the destruction of the Twin Towers were a symbolic reference to the destruction of the first and second temples of Jerusalem.

Before we continue, it’s important to note that the first temple, King Solomons temple, is referred to during Masonic rituals. The following text is fact-checked and taken directly from Wikipedia:


Rituals in Freemasonry refer to King Solomon and the building of his Temple. Masonic buildings, where lodges and their members meet, are sometimes called “temples”; an allegoric reference to King Solomon’s Temple.” ~ Wiki

Also, within Masonic symbology, you will often find The Twin Pillars of Polarity pictured below (also notice the all-seeing-eye and the inverted pentagram:

Ok, so now we understand the relevance of King Solomons temple and the ‘two pillars’ within Masonic symbology, let’s move on to the first temple, Solomons temple.

King Solomon, according to the Bible, built the First Temple of the Jews on a mountaintop circa 1000 B.C. Here is a photo of the temple below:

The temple stood for 400 years, only to eventually be torn down by troops commanded by the Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar, who sent many Jews into exile.

Ok, now get ready for a big one:

That day of destruction happened on 11-9, the 9th day of the Hebrew month of Av, the 11th month after the Jewish New Year of Rosh Hashanah.

That’s right. It was destroyed on the 9th day of the 11th month…. 9/11

Now let’s move onto the second temple

The second temple, later known as Herod’s Temple, was the temple that replaced Solomon’s Temple, which is presumed to have been built at the same location as the original before its destruction by the Neo-Babylonian Empire 586 years later during the Babylonian Siege of Jerusalem.

And what date, perhaps, do you think the second temple was destroyed?

Yep – not only was the First Temple destroyed on the 9th of Av, but on that very same day, in the year 70 CE, the Second Temple, was also destroyed.

That’s right, the second temple was also destroyed on the 9th day of the 11th month…. 9/11

Now onto The Washington Square arch…

So, the Washington Square arch in New York, was modelled after the Arch of Titus, in Rome. Here’s a photo of the Arch of Titus in Rome:

And The Arch of Titus in Rome was built to commemorate the Roman victory over the Jewish rebellion… just to make that clear, it was built to celebrate the destruction of the first and second temples….

But here’s the kicker: it shows in sculptural relief, artifacts from the fall of Jerusalem and destruction of the second temple.

And before the Twin Towers were destroyed, what buildings could you see if you looked through the Washington Square Arch in New York?
