"As you have been shown on the mountain" G-d tells Moshe three times concerning the commandment to build the Tabernacle and its sacred vessels.

To what vision, what plan, what blueprint is G-d referring?

Just what did Moshe and the children of Israel see on Mount Sinai, what did G-d show them?

And how was that glimpse of G-d's overwhelming Oneness to be embodied and reflected in the Holy Temple and its vessels, renewing and reliving every day our incredible closeness to G-d.
