Portrayed According to the Sources
Paul Philip Levertoff’s great masterpiece is now available in English, allowing readers access to the world of Jewish mysticism and a means to understand better the thoughts of those to whom belong the oracles of God.
A sanctuary consists of defined holy space. In the days of Moses, as soon as a person set foot within the Tabernacle he had entered into holy space. Levitical guards watched over the boundaries and guarded the gates of the Sanctuary to prevent people from inadvertently profaning the holy space. Like the Tabernacle, specific defined limits demarcate the holiness of the Sabbath.
