Making the Mishkan

For the second year in a row, Mrs. Leora Klein's sixth grade capped off months of learning about the Mishkan by building one.  Last week, students of all ages were treated to tours of their life-size model led by some of the most knowledgeable 6th grade docents I've ever seen.

New for this year were the bigdei kehunah, the garments worn both by the Kohen Gadol and the Kohen Hedyot.  It was truly inspiring to see how much knowledge and deep understanding about the construction of the Mishkan and its vessels our 6th graders gained by constructing it themselves.
