Shekhinah (Shekinah)

Hebrew, "the one who dwells"; term used by post¬biblical Jewish rabbis to refer to God's glory dwelling among his people. According to Dan Brown, "early Jews believed that the Holy of Holies in Solomon's Temple housed not only God but also His powerful female equal, Shekinah" (DVC, 309, 446). This timeline contains a thousand-year error: early Jews didn't use the term Shekhinah, which doesn't appear in either Testament. Although later rabbis occasionally envisioned Shekhinah as a beautiful princess, Shekhinah was never worshiped as a deity sep¬arate from the God of Israel. See also Adonai; Havah; Jah; YHWH.
