    There is no point for any other answer: No one has ever reached salvation by keeping all the Laws, The purpose of the Laws is to point out what is sin, The purpose of Temple sacrifices was to be cleansed temporarily from whatever the latest sin was, Without the Temple, there is no, repeate with emphasis, NO posiblity of redemption because there is no place lawfull to offer a sacrifice except the Temple. Bearing all that in Mind, there is no point to practicing all the peculiar doings of Judaism since they cannot bring salvation. Plainly put, one might as well be a Christian since that is the only way to reach salvation without the Temple. Sorry for the legalistic approach. Hear Oh Israel, the Lord thy God is one God. Thou shalt love the Lord with all thy heart and mind and strength. And, love thy neighbor as thyself. (Including the A-rabs living in Judea and Samaria!)
