Judaism: The Temple Institute: Love and Marriage
Love and marriage:
This is the story of the building of the Tabernacle in the desert.
G-d so loved His people Israel that He could not bear to wait until they entered the land before they would build for Him a sanctuary.
He ordered a temporary, portable sanctuary that would enable Him to dwell among Israel even during their forty year desert sojourn.
This was so that they could begin at once their life together.
