Ha-Makom: Sacred Space in Judaism

February 9, 2019 @ 9:30 am - 10:00 am

Ha-Makom: Sacred Space in Judaism

Every Shabbat in January and February from 9:30-10:00 AM.

In this Beit Midrash series we will explore the idea of sacred space in Jewish thought, from the Mishkan (Tabernacle) in the wilderness to the Temple in Jerusalem to Israel and the modern synagogue. How do spaces contain or channel the divine?  How do they change the people in them and/or provide a reference point for those outside them?  And how might Jewish ideas of space guide us as we move through the spaces in our lives?  No prior knowledge is assumed, and all texts will be studied in English
