Instead of looking for the temple to be built for the sacrifices to begin again all they need really is the tabernacle once everything else is in place such as having the ashes of the Red Heifer.

My guess is that the Ark of the Covenant lasted as long as the actual covenant between the Hebrews/Jews and the God they worshiped. And when the Temple housing the Ark was finally destroyed, so was the Ark, and so was promise of God to protect the people as his chosen ones. That's why their nation was destroyed, and that's why they've been hunted and hounded and slaughtered en masse. Because there's no more covenant, and no more Ark. Stripped of its gold, burned, and whatever remained of the Ten Commandments smashed into powder.
And they can perform their rituals and keep Kosher for another 2,000 years, and it ain't gonna change anything. Their God is gone from them.

A duplicate from descriptions, or of the now lost original?
As we have noted prior, the Ark of the Covenant was a small portable ark and we do not know whether another ark was built for the Holy of Holiest in which the Ark of the Covenant may have resided within. Many ancient traditions state that duplicate Arks were built, the most famous, as some have suggested, was a duplicate Ark was built for the son of Solomon and Makeda, the Queen of Sheba, whose capital city was Axum, Ethiopia. It was their son, Menelik, called Bayna-Lehkem, who became the eventual ruler of Ethiopia, yet accomplished the biggest heist in religious history, which according to The Kebra Nagast, a thirteenth century documents, the abduction of the Ark of the Covenant, which in this manuscript does not record any duplicate, instead, they replaced the Ark with a pile of lumber, hid under the covering of the Ark..
