Default The Veil

Something that has been on my mind off and on for a while. Anyone have any references as to the size? In particular the thickness. The size doesn't seem to be specified and that makes sense since whoever made it each year knew where it had to fit. I have heard, "the thickness of a man's hand" and that it had to be strong enough so that 2? horses tied to it could not tear it apart.
First time I heard mention of it, it was a key moment in my life.
Just wondering.

Been reading exodus and Leviticus and remember the description of the color but don't think any reference to size, thickness, or strength. I could have missed it.... Honestly - those two books are a tough read.... Numbers also!

No, the dimensions aren't in there just basically how it is to be made is in Exodus. There are some fascinating studies of it when "googled". Nothing about the rope and the high priest but, writings about that are supposed to be found in some ancient Hebrew texts.
