Re: the Synagogue as matrix for the LP
I am not convinced the two propositions you are questioning stand or
fall together. I am struck by the similarities between the Kaddish and
the LP, but I have no time for teh eschatological interpretation of
same. Maybe the link to the synagogue is one string in the bow of those
who interpret the LP eschatologically, but surely it does not *require*
an escahtological interpretation.
