Posted by Levi Cooper on August 15, 2023
Topics: The Maggid of Melbourne, Exploring Sacred Spaces


Do synagogues need windows? Going back to the time of Daniel, we learn that windows have played a role in prayer, but does that mean that windows are required? Why would we even need windows, what particular role would they play in our synagogues? Join the Maggid of Melbourne as he examines the Rambam and later authorities on their position regarding windows in shul.
