By Meir Ben-Dov
At the beginning of the 1990s, the Prime Minister of the Castilian provincial government paid an official visit to Israel. His host was Yitzhak Navon, who was the Minister of Education and Culture at the time. Navon later became the fifth president of the State of Israel.
At a party for the Prime Minister of Castile, Yitzhak Navon gave a speech in his guest’s honor during which he mentioned Meir Ben-Dov’s research on Spanish synagogues. Mr. Navon noted that this research was invaluable to him when he went to Spain in order to do research for a film being produced by the Israel Broadcasting Authority to mark the five hundredth anniversary of the Expulsion.
Hardcover, 256 pages Includes several hundred photos, illustrations, maps and architectural plans
About the author:
Meir Ben-Dov, an archaeologist and historian, is one of the highest-ranking members of the second generation of Israeli archaeologists. His work has been published in many fields, with the study of ancient architecture, planning and construction among the most important of his studies. Although he discovered the architecture of Spanish synagogues by chance, in time he came to regard his work in that field as a sacred mission.
To date, Meir Ben-Dov has published seven books about archaeology in Israel and particularly in Jerusalem, together with dozens of scientific essays on topics in archaeology and history. He has also written hundreds of popular essays in the field of Israeli archaeology and history.
Praise for The Golden Age: Synagogues of Spain
“Meir Ben-Dov’s research accompanied me to towns and villages in Spain as I searched for the roots of the Jewish community in those places. The Spanish synagogues and their heritage served as a guide for the construction of hundreds of synagogues throughout the Jewish Diaspora. Congratulations to Meir Ben-Dov for this comprehensive work, which is of the greatest significance in the study of Jewish communities in Spain.” -Yitzchak Navon, President of Israel
