Ishetum

by Rabbi Geoffrey W. Dennis
The zone of the home where the household god dwells; a sanctuary or shrine. There was normally a pashshur shakki, an altar or table, located there. Mesopotamians may have actually buried at least one of their Ili u'Mete, familial dead, under this space, within the confines of the house.
