Some have a separate room for Torah study, called the בית מדרש‬ beth midrash "house of study".

Torah study is the study of the Torah, Hebrew Bible, Talmud, responsa, rabbinic literature and similar works, all of which are Judaism's religious texts.

A beth midrash is a Jewish study hall located in a synagogue, yeshiva, kollel or other building.


Synagogues are consecrated spaces used for the purpose of prayer, Tanakh reading, study and assembly; however, a synagogue is not necessary for worship.

The Hebrew Bible, also called the Tanakh or Mikra, is the canonical collection of Jewish texts, which is also the textual source for the Christian Old Testament.


Halakha holds that communal Jewish worship can be carried out wherever ten Jews assemble.

Jews or Jewish people are an ethnoreligious group and a nation, originating from the Israelites and Hebrews of historical Israel and Judah.

Halakha is the collective body of Jewish religious laws derived from the Written and Oral Torah.


Worship can also be carried out alone or with fewer than ten people assembled together.


However, halakha considers certain prayers as communal prayers and therefore they may be recited only by a minyan.

In Judaism, a minyan is the quorum of ten Jewish adults required for certain religious obligations.


In terms of its specific ritual and liturgical functions, the synagogue does not replace the long-since destroyed Temple in Jerusalem.

The Temple in Jerusalem or Holy Temple was any of a series of structures which were located on the Temple Mount in the Old City of Jerusalem, the current site of the Dome of the Rock and Al-Aqsa Mosque.

A temple is a structure reserved for religious or spiritual rituals and activities such as prayer and sacrifice.

Jerusalem, is a city located on a plateau in the Judaean Mountains between the Mediterranean and the Dead Sea.
