Living Room: Shrines

By Vanessa L. Ochs

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), June 2009

Ochs examines the ritual of shrines. Though not a Jewish tradition, Jews do privately create unconventional shrines that act as spiritual agents that construct our religious and cultural identities, that prompt ethical and holy response, and that foster connections between the self and the community.
