This lavishly illustrated volume provides a panoramic view of the synagogue as a place of worship, community center, school, and fortress, from the classical period to the present. But it is far more than a survey of architectural styles – it is a veritable history of Judaism as manifested in the Jewish communities’ place of worship.
