A Mini-Tour of the Mini-Mikdash

C.B. Gavant

Have you ever seen the Beis HaMikdash? Perhaps you’ve seen models or drawings of the Mishkan. If you’re very lucky, maybe you’ve even seen the Kosel. Of course, there’s no one alive today who’s merited to see the Beis HaMikdash. But if you go to the Aish HaTorah World Center, located right opposite the Kosel Plaza, and climb the stairs to the building’s roof, you’ll get to see a model of the Second Beis HaMikdash in all its glory.

Wondering what you can do? Let’s visit the Gateshead Jewish Primary School for Girls in England for some great ideas! We spoke with Deputy Headteacher Mrs. Debra Danan and three students, to find out their school’s special recipe for peace and friendship.
