For nearly two millennia, from the year 70 until the founding of Israel in 1948, the Jewish people were without a homeland. But wherever they wandered in the great Diaspora they continued the tradition of building synagogues as refuge for their beliefs and testament to their strength and accomplishments as a people. And "I Shall Dwell Among Them" considers the spiritual, architectural and cultural significance of these structures. It is the first study to document the synagogues with both scholarly depth and photographic excellence. "Among the phenomena Neil Folberg detected in his search for historic synagogues was that wherever Jews settled--whether in Morocco, Hungary or the American South--the designs of their temples reflected the prevailing style of the environment. But it is the building's power to evoke spirituality that comes across most forcefully in his photographs."
--"New York Magazine"
