Live & Learn with Jewish Art Education

This program introduces European synagogues that were the center of the Jewish world, prior to the Holocaust. Jews were part of the fabric of daily life though they experienced anti-Semitism which permeated Europe for centuries.
Until 1948 and the establishment of the State of Israel, Jews were always in the minority in every country. As such, Jews always adopted and adapted to the mainstream or host communities throughout the world. They adopted the language, manner, art, and architecture of their host neighbors. They worked among the general population. In the Jewish quarter, their synagogues mirrored the details and style of the churches or cathedrals nearby.
This presentation highlights the synagogues that were destroyed and lost.
