Biblical theme park

JTA:

A biblical theme park planned for northern Israel will include a mock-up of the First Temple in Jerusalem.
The 75-foot-high reconstruction of the Jewish shrine will be among features in the “time travel” section of Bible World, expected to open in Kiryat Shmona by 2007.

The complex is expected to cost $8 million and attract up to 400,000 visitors a year. “The book of all books, the cradle of the Jewish people’s culture, is ebbing from public awareness,” the town’s rabbi, Yigal Zippori, told Yediot Achronot on Thursday. “Therefore there is a need for this new park.”
Zippori said the mock temple would incorporate a three-dimensional educational film aimed at teaching visitors about priestly rituals at the ancient site.
