  •  I've usually seen "haMaqom" as a name for God (3+ / 0-)

    translated as "the Omnipresent."

    Which is very odd when you think about it; as a concept, omnipresence is kind of the opposite of "place," in that "place" implies specificity and exclusivity.  It's difficult to think what else maqom might mean as applied to God, though.
