Exodus 25:8 "And they shall make Me a sanctuary"

Lori had been begging her mother to sleep over at Shani's house for a long time.

Finally, her mother agreed and she packed her overnight bag excitedly.

The next day when Lori came home from school, her mother asked, "Did you have a nice time?"

"Yes," answered Lori, "but I feel much more at ease and comfortable at home than at Shani's house!"

Lori's mother smiled. She knew that "there's no place like home!"

HaShem is everywhere.

Yet, there is one place which He calls His home.

This is the Beit HaMikdash (the Temple in Jerusalem).

In the Beit HaMikdash, HaShem's greatness can be felt more than in any other place in the world.

This Positive Mitzvah commands us to construct this great building for HaShem.
