    Exodus 16

    What information do we have about this? Where are the omers of Manna that the Israelites and Aaron were commanded to keep? --This would be a great proof for many people, that God did indeed rain Manna from heaven, and that He freed the Israelites from slavery in Egypt -- if it could be tested and verified.

    Tradition put them stored along side the stone tablets given to Moses in the arc of the Covenant. When it was lost and to whom is anyone's guess.

    I can't bring to mind a citation, but I seem to recall the Rabbis opining that all the various things said to have been kept as mementos of great miracles, like the omer of manna, and so forth, were kept in the Kodesh Kodashim (Holy of Holies) with the Aron (Ark of the covenant)-- some even said inside the Ark. And when the First Temple was destroyed and looted by the Babylonians in the disaster of the 9th of Av in 587 BCE, the Ark and everything else in the Temple was lost, and was never recovered.

    The Ark that they kept in the Second Temple was a replacement, made during the rebuilding of the Temple around the turn of the fifth century BCE, and it was empty, nor was there anything in the Kodesh Kodashim of the Second Temple besides that Ark.
