Examining how the ten-part system of Kabbalah's Tree of Life is reflected in the holy design of the first Hebrew Sanctuary, Zohara Hieronimus shows that human beings are designed to reflect the divine qualities of the Creator. She discusses a wide array of biblical and scholarly texts as well as traditional Hebrew practices that can lead each of us to become a sanctuary for God's presence. Through self-refinement, ritual devotion, and prayer, as practiced since biblical times, these initiatory teachings reveal how the practitioner may become a vessel for illumination, prophecy, and peace, creating an inner dwelling place for the divine presence.
