AMERICAN SYNAGOGUE ARCHITECTURE
THANK YOU TO EVERYONE
who purchased copies of my 2008 eBook "American
Synagogues: A Photographic Journey"
One is no longer available for purchase and I am now
working on a revised & expanded version of the original. The new version will
feature updated photographs and history as well as photographs from many new
synagogues. Some vintage images will also be included. My goal is to
include at least 250 to 500 additional synagogues. Volume One featured 1410
individual synagogues from all 50 States and Washington, DC. The new version
will include synagogues in American territories such as US Virgin Islands and
