MAKOM: The Place of "Space" in Jewish Tradition

By Baruch Sienna

Coalition for the Advancement of Jewish Education (CAJE), Fall 2008

Holiness is about defining and setting space apart. As we contemplate the space around us, and the potential for finding holiness, we must always ask ourselves where we are located physically, geographically, emotionally and spiritually.
