Editors Note Built in Prague in 1270 and the world's oldest active synagogue, this tale for young readers provides a look at the enduring legend of how this structure was built by angels and the belief that a golem has lived within its walls ever since.
Editors Note 1 As legend tells it, the Old-New Synagogue in Prague was built by angels, and later was home to a golem who remains locked away in the building to this day. In lyrical prose, Mark Podwal shares the story of the world's oldest active synagogue, which was completed in 1270. Throughout the years, this sacred place of prayer and celebration has endured plagues, wars, and the Nazi regime. Its story is part legend, part history, and one that stands as a testament to the perseverance of the Jewish people. Includes an author's note and bibliography.
