As a focal point for the community as well as a spiritual center, the synagogue has both a symbolic and a practical significance. From its origins in the Tabernacle through the exuberant Venetian synagogues of the Renaissance to the often stark simplicity of modern buildings, Meek examines the rich history of the building central to every Jewish community. Over 200 illustrations, 150 in color.
