(heb. אֲרוֹן הַבְּרִית‎ — aaron a-Brit, also heb. אֲרוֹן הַעֵדֻת‎ — aron a-edut)
The Ark, in which the stone Tablets of the Covenant with the Ten Commandments were kept (Deuteronomy 10: 2) is the greatest shrine of the Jewish people. The Ark, according to the Torah, was a symbol of God's union with the people of Israel and served as evidence of the presence of God in his environment (Exod. 25:22, 2 Chronicles 6:41).
