The 11th prohibition is that we are forbidden from making a monument1 for people to gather around and honor, even if it was made for serving G‑d. The reason for this prohibition is so that our service of G‑d, exalted be He, should not resemble that of idolatry, since they would build monuments and place idols upon them.

The source of this commandment is G‑d's statement (exalted be He),2 "Do not erect a sacred pillar, since this is something that G‑d your Lord hates."3

One who transgresses this prohibition is punished by lashes.
