STARTS AT 10:00AM - Rivaling the greatest wooden architecture in history, the synagogues of 18th-century Poland inspired artists Rick and Laura Brown to embark on a 10-year pursuit to reconstruct the elaborate roof and painted ceiling of the Gwozdziec synagogue, destroyed by Nazis in World War II. Leading more than 300 students and professionals from 16 countries, the Browns grapple with warped timbers, tricky paints, and period hand tools in pursuit of recovering a lost world.
