From his many thoughts, Yisrael Ariel has the belief that every generation has an obligation to do everything to rebuild the Temple. This view is different from other groups who choose to wait for the Messiah to come.
Since 2006, apart from being the head of the Temple Institute, Yisrael Ariel has also been involved in efforts to revive the Sanhedrin or the supreme council of Judaism.
Most recently, along with other Temple Institute officials such as Rabbi Chanan Kupietzky, Rabbi Tzachi Mamo, and Rabbi Azaria Ariel, he also participated in the weaning ceremony at Ben-Gurion Airport.
