    In response to the Rebbe’s call for increased learning about the Beis Hamikdosh during the Three Weeks leading to Tisha B’Av, campers at the Tzemach Tzedek Shul Day Camp in Sydney Australia are busy building the Beis Hamikdosh, or actually, many small Beis Hamikdosh models.

    Part of learning classes at Tzemach Tzedek day camp took on an Arts n’ Crafts atmosphere last week. First there was a shiur on the floor plan and dimensions of the Beis Hamikdosh by Mendel Gurary, Shliach from Yeshiva Gedolah Melbourne. Then the boys, with the help of their counselors took to scissors, glue, and cardboard sheets to begin assembling their own model of the Second Temple in Yerushalayim.  Younger campers built their models using a simpler heichal component from the model plans. Older and more enterprising builders chose to assemble the more intricate but more difficult version.

    “It’s so amazing how the children were so excited to be able to build a replica of The Beis Hamikdosh,” said project manager Mendel Weinbaum, “it brought the learning to life.”

    ”We haven’t received such an overwhelming response like this since coming to Sydney, Mendel Okonov said. “The children love to learn hands-on and we are enjoying every moment.”

    At the completion of the Beis Hamikdosh session, Rabbi Yehuda Straiton, director of Tzivos Hashem in Sydney who assisted in making the project happen, led the children in singing Sheyibone Beis Hamikdosh.

    The Beis Hamikdosh workshop sessions and shiurim continue at Tzemach Tzedek until all the models are completed. A communal breakfast and learning session for campers and community will take place at the end of the program.

    In preparation for Rosh Chodesh Av, a printable paper model of the Beis HaMikdosh, that kids can assemble, is being made available for FREE online to all Jewish children by Tzivos Hashem Traditional Crafts Workshops. Click here to download your own.
