The Beis HaMikdash.
The Rebbe established a custom, that he repeatedly reinforced by his own personal participation, that during the three weeks we learn about the Beis HaMikdash. This learning is considered part of rebuilding the third Beis HaMikdash (based on a Midrash).
Included here are a group of classes (not connected to one another) on this subject.
This class given at Machon Chana overviews the Beis HaMikdash in an inspired way. It is a beginners class.
What is the Beis HaMikdash for? G-d meeting us (the Holy Ark; Torah) or us meeting Him (Korbonos, The Mizbeach)? Both are true as represented by Rambam and Ramban.
The third Temple won't be the third but "of three" encompassing the virtues of the first and the second in addition to it's own distinction. 
 The Beis HaMikdash is designed to reflect how we live, and Human habitation is divided into three basic areas. the beis HaMikdash reflected this.
A Class given at Yagdil Torah describing what was involved in preparing to go to the beis HaMikdash.
A Class given at Yagdil Torah describing the intense standard of Halacha maintained in the Beis HaMikdash. In the Beis HaMikdash food is holy; We don't sit.
