Tabernacle Available to View

Posted on: January 22nd, 2016 by Rockway Mennonite Church No Comments

Our Rockway winter Bible series this year focused on the book of Numbers, which in Hebrew is called Bemidbar, which means,“In the Wilderness.” During their 40 year sojourn in the desert, the Israelites were instructed to build a portable sanctuary called the tent of meeting or tabernacle. Lewis Brubacher discovered an old model of the tabernacle created by S.F. Coffman and this students in the early 1900s for use in the Ontario Bible School. Lewis graciously re-assembled this historic model and it is now on display in the Grebel archives workroom. You are welcome to view it there. (Directions to Conrad Grebel) Just ask the librarian for access to the archive workroom.
