Raise the Roof Trailer

“How often do you get a chance to reach deep into history and bring something back?”  –Rick Brown

When the acclaimed artists/educators Rick and Laura Brown decided that they would reconstruct a magnificent, 18th century, Polish wooden synagogue in Poland, even those who knew this remarkable couple well doubted it would ever happen.      
     After working for ten years with hundreds of students, educators, scholars and craftsmen, the Browns’ Gwozdziec synagogue reconstruction project has become the iconic centerpiece of the new POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews in Warsaw.    
     Raise the Roof is the story of this epic journey.
