G-d’s glory fills not only the Tabernacle, but the entire world. Serving G-d in this world and living life in the acknowledgment of His omnipresence is a fine line, and a highly choreographed balancing act. The laws of purity delineated throughout the book of Leviticus are, in fact, instructions for maintaining a spiritual nearness to G-d on an every day basis, without falling into the abyss of our own physicality.
