Dear Vilna Gaon,There is a Jewish Tradition that a Replica of the ark was constructed and presented to the Queen of Sheba, which she then took back. I am trying to recall where I read it!There is an Ethiopian tradition that the Queen of Sheba deceived Solomon and stole the ark. How she did this is more than anyone knows.
Slightly different topic.
Is there any reference in Jewish sources to the rending of the veil of the temple? I got the impression there was from a taped sermon by an American pastor, but have never come accross such a reference.
