SHEKINAH is the Jewish term for the dwelling presence of God's glory. It is not a word used in the Bible.

The Ark of the Covenant is the symbol of the presence and glory of God. The Ark of the Covenant is placed in the Most Holy Place of the temple where God's glory dwelt between the two cherubim made of gold.

Exodus 22: 22 There, above the cover between the two cherubim that are over the ark of the Testimony, I will meet with you and give you all my commands for the Israelites.
Ezekiel 10:18 Then the glory of the LORD departed from over the threshold of the temple and stopped above the cherubim. Leviticus 16: 2 The LORD said to Moses: "Tell your brother Aaron not to come whenever he chooses into the Most Holy Place behind the curtain in front of the atonement cover on the ark, or else he will die, because I appear in the cloud over the atonement cover.

Psalm 80:1 Hear us, O Shepherd of Israel, you who lead Joseph like a flock; you who sit enthroned between the cherubim, shine forth.

Acts 17:24 The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by hands.

Contrary to all pantheistic and polytheistic notions, God is the one, Paul says, who has created the world and everything in it; he is the Lord of heaven and earth. He does not live in temples "made by hands," nor is he dependent for his existence upon anything he has created. Rather, he is the source of life and breath and everything else humanity possesses.

Shekinah is the cloud that indicated God's Presence abiding with His People– the Israelites of the Old Testament. This Glory Cloud hovered over the Tabernacle at which the Israelites worshiped while they traveled the desert toward their promised land. Later, when a temple was built in Jerusalem, the Presence of God resided there among His people. The last temple in Jerusalem was destroyed by the Romans in AD 70. Since then, the Presence of the Lord is only spiritual among the Jewish people. However, Jesus promised his Church that He would abide with them until the end of time. This promise is fulfilled in the Holy Eucharist in the Catholic Church. Some Biblical references to Christ's Presence as Eucharist (a thanksgiving, a sacrifice, and a communion): Mt 26:27-29; Mk 14: 22-25; Lk 22: 14-20; 1 Cor 11:23-26; Jn 6:53-59.God Bless You.
