The concept of sacred places, although found in all religions, is expressed differently in different traditions and this book examines models of sacred space in Judaism from an anthropological structuralist perspective. It discusses the development of these models in relation to historical and cultural transformation. The first section of the book analyzes sacred space as it is presented in Biblical and rabbinic texts, focusing on the transformation of centralized sacred space. The second section develops an ethnographic analysis of Jewish sacred space as understood by Jews today. It examines the structure of the synagogue in both Orthodox and non-Orthodox communities and the way in which these communities use sacred space. It also discusses the role of the State of Israel as a new centre of secular and religious Jewish sacred space, and as a return to a centralized model. The final section examines the anthropological and theological implications of the models of sacred space and presents an approach to understanding the processes and mechanisms of transformation.

Israel itself is a very sacred place to Jewish people. Some rituals, like the blessing said at the Shabbat meal and the observance of Passover, take place in Jewish homes. Jews who do not live there try to visit at some point in their lives. The Western Wall of the ancient temple remains. Synagogues, of course, vary in style around the world, but all contain certain features: The Holy Ark with one or more Torah scrolls, covered by curtains. A six-pointed star, the Star of David, is often found both inside and outside synagogues.

A synagogue is the Jewish place of worship. Young Jews will attend lessons where they will learn the basic religious teachings of the faith. Jews will gather in the synagogue: to pray as a community. to celebrate different rites of passage and festivals. to assemble as a Jewish community. Older Jews will study the Torah throughout their lives, and most synagogues will have a library full of the Jewish sacred texts for their followers to study.
