For the first time in the history of the Jewish people, a model Temple school for Kohanim and Levites will break ground here in Mitzpe Yericho. The model, which will be built to scale, will serve to teach the Kohanim and Levites the service which they will need to perform in Jerusalem when the Holy Temple is rebuilt. After 2000 years of exile, how can the Kohanim work and serve in the Temple without knowing how? This unique school will give the Kohanim and Levites first-hand experience where to bring the sacrifices, where to throw the blood, wine, and so on.
The school will start with groundbreaking for the outer altar, a 16 x 16 meter structure with a height of 5 meters and a ramp of an additional 16 meters!
