Students Tour the Second Beit HaMikdash Using Virtual Reality Equipment

Ramaz News

Ramaz students entered the second Beit HaMikdash! Impossible? Well, sixth and seventh graders combined their Judaic Studies with incredible 21st-century advancements, using virtual reality equipment to explore ancient Israel. With a headset to see the alternate world, and handheld remotes to control their virtual movements, they took an interactive tour and even entered the second Beit HaMikdash. They found materials used for korbanot and collected coins that allowed for purchase of the korbanot. Some students were even able to locate well-hidden jugs of precious oil used in the Beit HaMikdash. The excitement in the room as students began discovering different parts of the Beit HaMikdash was palpable! Coming back from the virtual Beit HaMikdash to the "real world" was difficult, but at least our students landed back in the Ramaz Middle School.

Thank you to Kim and Jason Ostheimer and Daniel Levin for sponsoring this program.
