Yiddishkeit around the world
During an around-the-world Sabbatical in 2007, architect/planner Michael Geller visited Jewish museums, synagogues and other centres of Yiddishkeit in Europe on five continents.

His subsequent travels have taken him to many other parts of the world where he has continued to photograph museums synagogues and cemeteries.
