SYNAGOGUES360 provides a visual record of Jewish culture, showing and preserving synagogues through interactive 360-degree panoramic photos. It invites you and future generations to view the interiors of Jewish places of worship, which are clear and irrefutable indicators of the state of Jewish culture, architecture, art, and stature in their communities throughout the Diaspora. Each synagogue is literally a “sign of the times”, providing a window into the Jewish past and present.
Time, weather, political and demographic shifts inevitably erode cities and buildings. These, along with occasional upsurges of violent anti-Semitism have been particularly thorough erasers of the physical evidence of Jewish history. SYNAGOGUES360 visually and digitally saves Jewish synagogues, an impressive physical expression of Jewish culture for current and future generations to see and experience.
