Silenced Sacred Spaces: Selected Photographs of Syrian Synagogues
by Robert Lyons

Silenced Sacred Spaces: is an exhibition drawn from the remarkable photographic survey conducted by Lyons for the World Monuments Fund in the spring of 1995.  The Jewish Heritage Research Center and the LoweArtGallery in Syracuse, NY first organized the exhibit, with financial assistance from the Samuel H. Kress Foundation.  It was on view at Yeshiva University Museum in New York from September 1997 through January 1998 and at the B'nai Brith Klutznick National Jewish Museum in Washington, D.C. through the end of 1998.  The exhibition is now housed at the American Sephardi Federation, Center for Jewish History, New York.
