How did the ancient Hebrews maintain their religion as they traveled from place to place?
If you read Exodus, Deuteronomy, Leviticus, and Numbers carefully, you'll find that they had a very hard time, as a whole people, doing this.
The ark was to be central in their worship, but since they were 12 tribes and about 5 or 6 million people ((Broken Link Removed) plus all their flocks and herds, it was very difficult for them to "maintain their religion" except for the times right after a miracle (such as the parting of the sea and the drowning of all the Egyptian army, and others).
If you read those books of the Old Testament carefully, you'll learn that they maintained their religion with great difficulty -- and often did not succeed.
