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.

Meek's spirited narrative shows the diverse ways in which a vast array of cultural influences have merged to produce a rich and coherent heritage in the fields of architecture and decoration. A meticulously researched and magnificently illustrated tome, The Synagogue combines spiritual and aesthetic sensitivity with a passion for human creativity, presenting an erudite and accessible introduction not just for the scholar, but for anyone at all.
