Replica of the Tabernacle at Timna Park

Just a short walk up the rise from the Lake, we could see the replica of the Tabernacle.

This is a replica of the Tabernacle God commanded the children of Israel to build. They dismantled and reconstructed it on each of their 42 stops in the desert. It was about 50 m (150 ft) long, about 25 m (75 ft) wide, and about 2.5 m (7.5 ft) high. Inside, is a replica of the altar, the laver, and the magnificent priestly garments, including the breastplate and the ephod. It also has a replica of the Table of the Shewbread, the Menorah, the incense altar and the Holy of Holies, where the Ark with its two Cherubim stands.

This is all set out in Exodus 25:1-8.
