It isn’t enough to go to temple. One must also become a temple.
A home for the Divine, a spiritual dwelling, is built out of mundane matter. From metals, to fabrics, to woods, the various materials of earth fashion the heavenly house. This is, essentially, life’s goal, to turn everything and everyone into a dwelling for the Divine. Upon the peaks of Sinai, the Creator blueprints for Moses the nuances of what exactly this temple looks like and how to carry its etherealness with us through any of life’s threatening wildernesses. The inner sanctum contains the ark, crowned by the cherubim and home to the tablets of the covenant. There is the menorah, the bread table, curtains, pillars, and altars. This building is up to code.
