Have a Great Time Learning about the Jewish Temple
The Jewish Temple was the holiest place in Israel.
"Scholars who study the laws of the service are considered by Scripture as if the Beit Hamikdash (Temple) was built in their days" (Talmud).
Read on to find out how you can learn about the Jewish Temple and have fun doing so. It's easy. It makes a great gift for young and old alike.
Quiz yourself: What do you know about the Temple?
How many courts did the Temple have?
Where was the Court of Israel?
Where were the fifteen steps of Levites?
Where was Nicanor Gate?
What did all these parts look like?
If you know the answers to these questions: Congratulations. Not many people have studied the Temple enough to know this.
However, if your knowledge of the Temple is not as good as it should be, we have a great idea for you!
Use a visual aid.
Build a model of the Temple.
If you do this, you are sure
to learn a lot about the Temple, and you are sure to remember it well. It's also
a great way to teach your kids and your friends.
So if you find it difficult or boring to study the Temple and its parts,
or if you just don't get around to doing it, here's a fun way to do it.
You can turn the building of the model into a family project or into a project at a Youth group
or community center. You can display it in your living room or in a school.

be easy to build.
