    IBR Ep 122- Understanding Temple Holiness
    Holiness. A word that has bewildered believers for a very long time. We severely lack a deep and thorough understanding of holiness all the while it is the foundation of God’s expectations of us. The Sages of Israel teach that when the Shekinah left the land of Israel just before the Babylonian Exile, it left in 10 stages. How does understanding these 10 levels of holiness help us to understand what God expects of us?
