Jewish life in Brownsville, East New York, Flatbush-East Flatbush, Bedford-Stuyvesant and other nearby areas of Brooklyn through the 1950s was a lively, rich and varied environment. Over the next few decades it dissipated greatly. As Jews moved to other areas, they left behind their synagogues. This book is a photographic essay of these ex-shuls; what happened to them, and how do they appear today. Many became churches whose facades still have Jewish symbols. Each of the 91 features ex-shuls include a photograph of how it appears today with a narrative that explains the history of the building.
