For nearly two millennia, from the year 70 until 1948 and the founding of Israel, the Jewish people were without a homeland. But wherever they wandered in the great Diaspora, the tradition of building synagogues continued, not only as a refuge for their beliefs but as a testament to their accomplishments as a people. Neil Folberg set out on a three-year journey, visiting Jewish communities in places as far-ranging as India, the Czech Republic, Israel, the American South, the Caribbean islands, the Canadian area, and the United States - with the magnificent Touro synagogue (Newport, RI) - to document the incredible beauty, diversity, and complexity of these buildings, which serve as centers of the communities and preserve continuity between past, present, and future generations. In the extraordinary variety and the intimacy and richness of their detail, the pictures reveal how the world's synagogues form what Folberg has called "a crown for the Jewish people."
