"As legend tells it, the Old-New Synagogue in Prague was built by angels, and later was home to a golem who remains locked away in the building to this day
In lyrical prose, Mark Podwal shares the story of the world's oldest active synagogue, which was completed in 1270
Throughout the years, this sacred place of prayer and celebration has endured plagues, wars, and the Nazi regime
Its story is part legend, part history, and one that stands as a testament to the perseverance of the Jewish people
