I thought this might be interesting for many here. I appreciated how this journalist referenced his own sacred spaces. "I admit that I felt a thrill of audacity entering even an analogue of the Kodesh HaKodashim. There is so much more to say about this magnificent structure. As a Jew, I experienced an exciting sense of standing within the grand sweep of history. Over centuries, the layout of the portable tent in the desert inspired a succession of ever more grandiose temples in Jerusalem — and, finally, 200 temples of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints across the world. A holy tent in the desert echoes across history."
