The Synagogue: A Place of Worship in Time and Space, April 17, 24, May 1, 6:30pm
Archeologists date the oldest synagogue to the 3rd century BCE. What does this structure have in common with our 21st-century centers of learning and worship? Have you wondered about the origin of the Ner Tamid or how layouts of the synagogues vary across time and place? Did you know that Sephardi synagogues have a different Aron Kodesh than Ashkenazi? This mini-course, taught by Miya Rotstein, explores these and other questions, looks at decorative art and architecture, and examines historical texts and accounts that have influenced the Jewish House of Worship.
