Temple Laver Moved to New Home

| |

The Temple Institute moved a giant copper laver, or wash basin, to the new home of its exhibit of Temple articles on Monday.

A statement by the Temple Institute said the basin, which is 2.5 meters (8.2 feet) tall and 2.8 meters (9.1 foot) in diameter is kosher for use in the Third Temple and can be used to purify 12 priests at once.

The statement also said the new basin has advanced systems that make it possible to overcome certain problems in Jewish law, as was done at the time of the Second Temple.

The Temple Organizations HQ congratulated the Temple Institute for its new headquarters and wished its employees “to see their vessels being moved again soon, this time to their appointed place, the Temple…”
