About the Author
Brad Kolodny has photographed nearly 600 synagogues in 12 countries over the last 30+ years. A Long Islander since 1997, he has visited and photographed every current and former synagogue building in Nassau and Suffolk counties. Brad's passion for local history and uncovering the past has led to the discovery of many little-known or long-forgotten facts about the history of the Jewish community on Long Island.
