This illustrated book combines the disciplines of history, architecture, and sociology in an engaging and edifying look at the experience of Jews in America over the past 350 years. Beginning with their insightful introduction, the Stolzmans share their passion for the subject by taking us on a journey through more than forty synagogues, ranging from the earliest extant American example, to the thriving suburban neighborhood centers of today. These synagogues, by architectural luminaries such as Frank Lloyd Wright, Percival Goodman, Philip Johnson, and Minoru Yamasaki, reflect both Jewish and American cultures and display the architects' and communities' responses to the often competing, but also complementary, forces of being Jewish and American, sacred and secular, modern and traditional.

Lee Shai Weissbach's innovative study sheds light on the functioning of smaller Jewish communities in a state representative of many in the Midwest and South. The synagogue buildings of Kentucky tell much about the experience of Kentucky Jewry. Synagogues, especially in smaller towns, have often served as the only setting available for a wide variety of communal activities. Weissbach outlines the history of every congregation established in Kentucky and every house of worship that has served Kentucky Jewry over the last 150 years, considering such issues as the financing of construction, the selection of architects, the way synagogue buildings reveal congregational attitudes, and the way local synagogue design reflects national trends. Eighty-two photographs show every one of Kentucky's synagogues, including buildings that are no longer standing or have been converted to other uses. This pictorial record documents the variety, distinctiveness, and significance of these buildings as a part of the Commonwealth's architectural, cultural, and religious landscape.
