Artists Rick and Laura Brown are not Jewish and not Polish, and yet they set out to rebuild

Gwozdziec, one of the magnificent 18th-century wooden synagogues of Poland, the last of

which were destroyed by Nazis during World War II. Their vision inspires hundreds of people

to join them. Using their hands, old tools and techniques, they rediscover Gwozdziec’s

history, culture, and art.

Raise the Roof follows the Browns and the Handshouse Studio team to Sanok, Poland,

as they begin building the new Gwozdziec roof. The crew has six weeks to hew, saw, and

carve 200 freshly logged trees and assemble the structure. Working against this deadline

and despite torrential downpours and exhaustion, the team must create the structure, and

disassemble it again for shipping and eventual installation in Warsaw’s Polin Museum.
