Episode 14: Mysticism in Synagogue Design

Posted by Levi Cooper on August 19, 2023
Topics: The Maggid of Melbourne, Exploring Sacred Spaces

There’s more to windows and synagogues than meets the eye. In this episode, the Maggid of Melbourne continues his discussion on windows in synagogues. Searching for guidance on how many windows should be used, we look to the mystical text known as the Zohar. While we may find some answers, true to form, mysticism leaves much hidden.
