One of a kind model of the Temple to be built by Aish HaTorah overlooking the Kotel (Unique Temple Model to Overlook Kotel):

On Wednesday this week, the Aish HaTorah center in Jerusalem’s Old City plans to unveil a one-of-a-kind model of the Temple. The model will be located in the Aish headquarters, overlooking the Kotel (Western Wall) and the Temple Mount.

The model will be unveiled at 11 a.m. It will be the focal piece in a museum dedicated to Judaism and the Jewish idea, “Aish” directors said. The museum will be open to all.

The model is unique in two ways, its designers say. For one thing, it is the largest of its kind. In addition, it will be the first to provide a view inside the Outer Sanctuary. An elevator system will move parts of the model, allowing visitors to view depictions of the Holy of Holies, the menorah and the Ark of the Covenant.

Aish director Ephraim Shore expressed hope that the new museum, and the Temple model in particular, would educate Jews and non-Jews alike about ‘the centrality of the Jewish connection to Jerusalem and the Temple Mount.'”

Thanks to J. Lauer!
