Photographer Folberg traveled the world for three years visiting Jewish communities and photographing both grand-scale and modest synagogues. His rich color images are grouped in chapters according to region the Mediterranean, Asia, the Americas and the Caribbean, northern Europe, Eastern Europe, and Israel and are accompanied by his account of the making of the photographs. Augmenting the visual display is an essay (by Yom Tov Assis, a scholar affiliated with the Hebrew University of Jerusalem) which focuses on the social and cultural history of the Jews. The presentation is lavish in a 10x12.5" format. No index. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

About the Author:

Neil Folberg is a former student and colleague of the late Ansel Adams. He now lives in Jerusalem.

From Booklist:

Renowned photographer Folberg has been, primarily a landscape photographer so it was quite a challenge for him to adapt his vision and techniques to the interiors of historic synagogues. His success in capturing the beauty and grace of these cherished houses of worship is testimony as much to his talent and sensitivity as to the powerful spiritual aura of the synagogues themselves. Folberg traveled far and wide to find old, intact synagogues, and the array of architectural styles he discovered is awe inspiring. Folberg photographed synagogues in Italy, Turkey, Uzbekistan, the Caribbean, the U.S., Israel, and, most poignantly, all over Europe. Each synagogue reflects the indigenous architecture of its location, from the elaborate patterning of Turkish tile work to the clean cool stucco of the desert, to the carved wood, stained-glass windows, frescoes, and crystal chandeliers of Europe. The atmospheres range from earthy and homey to grand and showy, but every variation expresses devotion, pride, and gratitude. Although the seeds of Judaism have been forcibly dispersed all over the world, they have flourished wherever they've landed. This handsome and illuminating volume documents and celebrates that resilience and fortitude. Donna Seaman
