I am pleased to announce that "The Life of the Synagogue," an online exhibit from the College of Charleston, is now live. The exhibition contains 76 items selected from the William A. Rosenthall Judaica Collection at the College, one of the largest accessible collections of imagery related to synagogues and other aspects of Jewish life and culture around the world. Thousands of other images can be accessed from the William A. Rosenthall Collection page.

Introduction
Samuel D. Gruber
I am a cultural heritage consultant involved in a wide variety of documentation, research, preservation, planning, publication, exhibition and education projects in America and abroad. I was trained as a medievalist, architectural historian and archaeologist, but for 25 years my special expertise has developed in Jewish art, architecture and historic sites. My various blogs about Jewish Art and Monuments, Central New York and Public Art and Memory allow me to clear my email and my desk, and to report on some of my travels, by passing on to a broader public just some of the interesting and compelling information from projects I am working on, or am following. Feel free to contact me for more information on any of the topics posted, or if you have a project of your own you would like to discuss.
