Popis

Synagogues, their history and decoration, represent an illuminating record of the cultural and artistic history of the Jewish people.

As a focal point for community life as well as a spiritual centre, the synagogue has both a practical and a symbolic significance. From its origins in the Tabernacle, through the exuberant Venetian synagogues of the Renaissance, to the often stark simplicity of modern buildings, Harold A Meek examines the fascinating story of the building that remains central to every Jewish community.
