The Tabernacle at the foot of Mount Sinai

As an introduction to the great event of the Giving of the Law at Mount Sinai, Moses built an altar at the foot of the mountain and directed the priests to offer sacrifices upon it, as it is written, "and he built an altar under the mountain" (Ex. 24:4). With this action, Moses inaugurated what was later to become the daily service in the Tabernacle and later, in the Holy Temple in Jerusalem.

Twelve monuments were also erected at the foot of Mount Sinai, for the twelve tribes of Israel.
