How could a building like the Mishkan or the Beit HaMikdash, or a natural phenomenom like a cloud (at Har Sinai) contain the Presence of the Almighty (Ubiquitious, the infinite volume; omnipotent; omnipresent; omniscient etc. G-d)?

  • Why do you think any of those things did contain God? – Double AA Mar 4 '19 at 18:03

    I don’t have time to write it up, but this is an answer: sefaria.org/Sefer_HaChinukh.95.6 – DonielF Mar 4 '19 at 19:05
  • @DoubleAA 1 Kings 8:12-13; Schneerson: “With the commandment to erect a Sanctuary, G-d gave the promise ‘I will dwell within’. That promise was fulfilled with the manifestation of G-ds Presence in the Sanctuary. The Divine Presence within our material world. [I.e. His immanent presence, rather than יהוה Himself]. – Levi Mar 4 '19 at 19:35
