Description: This book examines models of sacred space in Judaism from an anthropological perspective. It discusses the development of these models in relation to historical and cultural transformation. The first part analyzes sacred space as it is presented in Biblical and rabbinic texts, focusing on the transformation of centralized to decentralized sacred space. The second part examines the structure of synagogue in both Orthodox and non-Orthodox communities and the way in which these communities use sacred space.

There is also a discussion of the role of the state of Israel as a new center of secular and religious Jewish sacred space, and as a return to a centralized model. The book ends by putting under the lens the anthropological and theological implications of the models of sacred space and presents an approach to understanding the processes and mechanisms of transformation.
