Ever Wonder What God Looks Like?

Can We See God's Face In The Mishkan?

Rabbi David Fohrman

Rabbi David Fohrman



Ever wonder what God looks like? It certainly seems like a heretical question to ask, since God doesn't have a physical form... but there seems to be a clue in the description of the Mishkan (Tabernacle) that traveled with the nation of Israel through the desert. Eerily enough, it seems to parallel a face – both in visual design and function. Was the Tabernacle meant to be a representation of God's face? Was it designed as a way to 'see' God's face in this world? In this video, Rabbi Fohrman explores this idea — that the Mishkan could be interpreted as a face — as well as what it could teach us about our own relationship to our physical bodies.
