Purpose of the Beis HaMikdash. (5767).

What is the Beis HaMikdash for? G-d meeting us (the Holy Ark; Torah) or us meeting Him (Korbonos, The Mizbeach)? Both are true as represented by Rambam and Ramban.
The class revolves around a debate between Rambam and Ramban regarding the primary purpose of the Beis HaMikdash. The Mizbeach is representative of the Jewish people meeting Hashem in that location and the Aron is representative of Hashem meeting the Jewish people in that location. What is the higher priority, us meeting Hashem or Hashem meeting us? Rabbi Paltiel explains the two views and presents an inspiring resolution from a sicha of the Lubavitcher Rebbe (reference coming).
