Building the Beis HaMikdosh all over the world by children all over the world.
With some minimal adult supervision children age 9 and up can have fun assembling their own paper model of the Beis HaMikdosh in about two and a half hours or less.
The model needs lots of cutting and folding, so prepare scissors, a quick-drying paper glue and some counselors with patience and a passion for Arts n' Crafts. (Optionally, adults can do all the cutting for each model in about 45 minutes or less).
This model is easy to build and is designed to exact scale , (1 cubit = 1mm) according to the Rambam's Hilchos Beis HaBechirah. The . There are two versions of the Heichal, (Sanctuary). One is simple and one is more detailed. Choose the one appropriate for your audience. A team of top experts were consulted in this ongoing project so yeshiva students and scholars will find the model helpful.
Please submit feedback on any mistakes, questions, or suggestions. Pictures of your campers with their finished models are welcome and will be posted here (with your permission).
