The Prophet Ezekiel had a vision of New Jerusalem and prophesized that it would be built south of the Temple Mount which is in the Old City of Jerusalem. According to Ezekiel’s prophesy, New Jerusalem will be the dwelling place of the twelve tribes of Israel. This prophesy is supposed to be fulfilled in the year 3372, going by the Hebrew calendar and take place on Yom Kippur.
