Brad Kolodny spent four years documenting every synagogue in Nassau and Suffolk Counties that he could find. The result is his comprehensive coffee table book from Segula Publishing.

On today's episode we discuss Seeking Sanctuary: 125 Years of Synagogues on Long Island. Brad discusses the genesis of the project and the complex history of this region's synagogues: the buildings that still exist, those that no longer exist, and those that are now laundromats. Through it all, Brad's fascination with these synagogues endured and allowed him to bring this book to life.
