Another Temple Vessel Has been Recreated!

Machon Hamikdash, the Temple Institute, has now added another Temple vessel to its inventory. Whatever anyone else is doing, the people of th Temple Institute are continuously preparing for the rebuilding of the Temple. Among other things, they have been recreating the various vessels of the Temple. The most famous of their recreations, but far from the only one, is the menorah.

The recreated kiyyor is 2.5 meters (8.2 feet) tall, and 2.8 meters (9.1 feet) circumference and, they say, is halachically kosher to be used in the Beit Hamikdash. This kiyyor is big enough to be used by 12 kohanim simultaneously!

The massive rains of this winter came just in time, to fill the kiyyor!

May the need to use it, the rebuilding of the Beis Hamikdash, come quickly!
