Artists Rick and Laura Brown inspire an international team to reconstruct one of the magnificent wooden synagogues of Poland, the last of which were destroyed by Nazis during World War II. As over 300 students and artisans work with period hand tools to build the complex log structure and paint the brilliantly colored ceiling, they discover a little-known period of history when Jews and Poles worked side-by-side to create a stunning, mysterious, and profoundly meaningful building.

In the course of World War II, an entire class of architecture was obliterated: the elaborate and sophisticated wooden synagogues of Poland. Not a single example of these remarkable structures survived the torches.

Now one of these synagogues is rising from the ashes. An international team of students and professionals is recreating the most prominent features of the Gwoździec synagogue—the timber-framed roof and elaborately painted ceiling panels—using historically accurate materials and methods.
