This penning brings to life an overlooked subject in contemporary Judaism – how did the ancient Jewish tradition, rooted in the Temple rituals transform itself after the Destruction of the Second Temple. As you will find, this transformation did not occur immediately nor did the Rabbi’s automatically accede to leadership. Indeed, competing sects of the Israelite religion vied for a leadership role. To understand, I have described the internecine fighting; the compromises of transforming the Jewish rites by including symbols of the Holy Temple; and its syncretization through the years. For one thousand years, the Israelites (Jews) worshipped in a Holy Space at the Temple in Jerusalem. Before the construction of the Temple ()there were two), the Holy of Holies, which contained the Law revealed to Moses and a small amount of manna), became the dwelling place for the Shechina (God’s presence). Indeed, there was a cloud hovering over the holy of holies for the 40-year journey through the dessert and the years leading up to the construction of the First Temple.
