Raise the Roof documentary film screening and discussion

November 15, 2015 $0.00 - $15.00 0

Raise the Roof  takes us on a journey of discovery.
Artists Rick and Laura Brown are not Jewish and not Polish, and yet they set out to rebuild Gwoździec, one of the magnificent 18th-century wooden synagogues of Poland, the last of which were destroyed by Nazis during World War II. Their vision inspires hundreds of people to join them. Using their hands, old tools and techniques they rediscover Gwoździec’s history, culture, and art. By the end of the project, they have done more than
reconstruct a lost synagogue: they have recovered a lost world. In 2014,
the Gwozdziec roof was unveiled as the centerpiece of the POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews in Warsaw.
Q&A following the film with Artists Rick and Laura Brown, the film director and artisans!
